Everywhere I turned this week, there was a TV show about the end of the world. I'm sure you've heard by now that a few civilizations, like the Mayans, point toward that date as a day for a major change. If I'm not mistaken, I believe the Mayan calendar actually ends on that day.

These shows are talking about this lining up with that and the south and north pole flipping and other scary things, if, of course, you buy into it. I'll tell you this much. The more I watched, the more I was getting worried.

December 21st is only a few days away! You mean to tell me I'm going to spend the last days of the Earth waiting on line, lugging bags through the parking lot and wrapping gifts? Hey, at least the Christmas credit card bills won't get to the house!

Listen, I'm too superstitious to mock this. So, should I be worried? Are you worried?
