I will remember this date as long as I live

Historical dates, like July 4, 1776, or October 14, 1066, are actually the mark of a half-life, some dialectical mid-point in the shift from one historical trend to another.

I recently experienced a reminder of historical flux, thanks to an email thread. See below:

Dude, I can't. I gotta take the kids to a 5K Fun Run, then we have to go to a playdate.
