ANNALS OF EARTH
© 1995, 2003 Dan Sewell Ward
Episode XII -- A Brief Chronology
It is perhaps time to bring these glorious annals to closure -- or semi-closure inasmuch as there remains the ever-so-slight expectation that the Earth and humanity's place in it may in fact continue for at least the foreseeable future. Say, until next Friday. (As one wag is reputed to have said, “The earth can't end today because it's already tomorrow in Tahiti .”)
In bringing these annals, these glorious chronicles, to closure, perhaps it is best if we RECAP, i.e.:
