Time is of the essence. We've always known fame is fleeting, but now we have to start worrying about time. The end is near, if you believe the Mayans, a band of visionaries older than the Rolling Stones who predicted so many thousands of years ago that the world will end Saturday. For those who are uninformed, the whole world is going to stop in mid-spin because a prediction made by the Mayan calendar back in the B.C. era. Yes, that B.C., not Before Cell phones. This calendar is a series of figures, numbers and math that was used to make predictions about the future.

Look at the bright side, you only have to read my post-Olympic assessment column once every four years. It is kind of like the Transit of Venus that way. You really don't want to hear about it and don't know why you should care, but at least you know it won't happen again in your lifetime.

U-S-A, U-S-A!” No, I didn't see the final against Japan either, but I was happy about it in the sense that I view it as revenge for the Datsun B-210.
