    clusterfucks past and present:

    I still have my work on y2k during my first job out of college in my resume: my employer took y2k seriously.

    If it hadn't been taken seriously it would have been as serious as Kunstler suggested. His fault was not examining the industry response, which was to pay through the nose to induce all those COBOL programmers out of their retirements.

    On the other hand, because I knew that it had been taken seriously I was able to join a fellow code monkey during the festivities and enjoy a good laugh at Brokaw and Rather and Jennings on the night that the washing machines failed to rise up against their masters. I don't, on a further hand, have an adequate defense for Kunstler's unfactoids on Lebanon, but what he's got wrong isn't particularly relevant to his analysis of this or that emergency, so whatever.
