Signs of the times

Odd things noted from the media this morning:

  • Georgie James is breaking up, and breaking my heart in the process.
  • Local school board is planning to put security cameras in selected cafeterias to prevent theft.  The economy must be dire indeed if people are reduced to stealing school cafeteria food.
  • Shell has started a weekly gasoline lottery--buy gas from them, and become eligible to win free gas.

It feels like these are the things that will be playing on the radio when someone makes an 'aughts nostalgia movie 25 years from now.  Of course, the radio will undoubtedly be itself an anachronism that was only introduced in 2010 models.
