June 6th, 2006


The year was 1906. Times were looking bleak. An 8.6 magnitude earthquake rocked Ecuador in January. In April, Mount Vesuvias erupted, killing hundreds of people in Naples. Later in the same month, San Francisco suffered a devastating earthquake - still remembered as one of the most devastating natural disasters the United States has ever experienced.

And yet on June 6, 1906, the only thing Wikipedia lists of note is the birth of Max Zorn - a mathematician. And a railroad began its first commercial run in North Carolina.

There's no listing of the appearance of the Antichrist or The End of Days or anything like that.

So, if anyone tries to freak you out about today, just let them know in a very polite way that they are suffering from hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia, a fear of the number 666.

Besides, regular readers of PTF will remember that our world was actually destroyed on May 25th, leaving us clear and free for June 6th, 2006.

If anything, perhaps June 6, 2006 will mark the beginning of the end for the Republican party, as the special election is held in California's 50th District, to replace Randy "Duke" Cunningham.

Known as a VERY safe Republican district, latest polls have Francine Busby, the Democrat, either tied or within the statistical margin of Republican Brian Bilbray - something unheard of in this district. If Busby takes the seat, Republicans everywhere will be cowering in the shadows, fearing their own End of Days - the November elections.

    Sounds like someone was cheating in Scrabble.
