Did you catch Paul McCartney’s double performance at the 2012 Grammy Awards? After he finished, Twitter exploded. No, not with messages from praise-gushing fans. Confused twitterers tapped out: Who is this guy? and He sure is old to be starting out! and Must not be much. Never heard of him.
I really didn’t need another thing to make me feel old. Just last week I reviewed a manuscript from a fellow much younger than I. He said that when he was in high school he wanted to go on a mission trip to Russia but his parents said absolutely not. “You can go on a trip,” they told him, “but not to a communist country. It’s too dangerous.” So he showed them another possibility—a trip to the Middle East. “Okay,” they said. “That’s a good, safe place.”
How times change! And how times change us.
Welcome to 2012~
