Progress

Back in October I made a big huge to-do list of things I needed to do around here, and then promptly forgot about it. Last week I made another huge list on paper, at which time I remembered that my other list was in Evernote. (And, by the way, I love Evernote.) When I looked at the old list, I was able to cross off about half of the list. Frankly, that was pretty exciting! Of course, my new list adds to the old one, but, oh, well, progress is progress, right?

A couple of weeks ago I stopped by the library in desperate need of some escapism to read. I picked up this book.

It’s pretty much your stereotypical homegrown terrorist/conspiracy book with the heroes having been “done wrong” by governmental bureaucracy. The plot revolves around a “cutting off the head” of government by taking out everyone in attendance at the state of the union address by the president. Which makes me wonder—How would we, as a society, react if all legislators, supreme court members, cabinet members, president and vice-president died at once. Part of me thinks we would go on with our local leaders and law enforcement, but another part of me wonders if chaos would ensue. Something to ponder….What do you think?
