ground zero

It is 2:02 PM Friday afternoon in the flow of existence. I keep wondering if we are finally coming to the end of this present evil age. It looks like we will be going to war with Russia soon The Bear mentioned in Old Testament prophecy. We have all over the Middle East tribal warfare between Muslims. We have Muslims killing Christians. We have Muslims killing Jews. We have Jews killing Muslims. It looks like a war between the West and the East. We have a ebola plague in Africa. We have droughts and forest fires everywhere. The list goes on and on. The cities of the world are on fire. The wails of the dying fill the air waves. So here I sit in our nice comfortable house in a nice quiet middle class neighborhood drinking coffee writing about the state of humanity. At times it all seems so absurd.

I am extremely tired right now so I will write about what used books I bought today at the big used books sale held in South Haven today. I bought these used books to ADD to our library.
