The Growing Collapse of Time

The last American veteran of World War I left this life the other day.  Hs name was Frank Buckles.   He was born in Missouri.   He had reached the age of 110.

This reminded me of a calculation that I had already made some time ago, which was that I was born only 13 years after WW 1 ended.

I think of WW1 as having been somewhere deep in Antiquity.

Increasingly, things are really getting ahead of themselves.
