Imitating one of my favorite blog authors, the Housewife Theologian, I'm naming my blog post after a song. But I bet its a song that neither she, nor many others who read this blog, will remember. It is a tension-filled piece of background music in the Clint Eastwood western, The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. (You can play a segment of the song here.) You know the scene...where Eastwood and at least two other bad guys are standing there, looking at each other out of the corners of their eyes, waiting for the first guy to draw.
It is an appropriate song though, as it is almost midnight here. That makes it sixty seconds to the end of the world, if the whole calender thingy is true.
But I don't think so. An ancient native calender might be your idea of how to predict the future, but it's not Mayan.
