In Other Doomsday News...

[Post Apocalyptic Reading] Alan Weisman, author of The World Without Us will be speaking tonight at the University of Utah about his best selling book that imagines what happens when real jungles reclaim concrete jungles and what vestiges of humanity will survive long after we're gone (think Tupperware vs. Mona Lisa). You know, cheery stuff to think about while we're on the verge of an economic meltdown-- but hey, you might as well start planning ahead for the end of civilization right?

Weisman's best-seller does take an interesting, multi-faceted look at the mark we leave on the earth and vice versa, and does so by slicing the question from a variety of angles: environmental, archaeological, sociological, spiritual etc... So come hear the author himself tonight, Tuesday Sep. 30, from 7-9 pm at the Libby Gardner Hall, the event costs $10.

But if that prospect seems like too much of a bummer to you, don't worry, there's other literature out there to teach you how to make the end of times the best of times. (Eric S. Peterson)
