The Sky Was Falling


Sherman, set the WABAC machine to 1999.  Back during the Y2k scare, there was a guy who lived in the Nashville area.  During college, he played for either UT or Vandy.  I can’t remember.  He built a successful local business.  He lived, with his family, in a big house down around Brentwood.  When Y2k came around, he sold his big house and all his crap.  He moved the family down around the Alabama border into a double-wide.  His plan was to wait out the coming computer generated Apocalypse by raising his own chickens and staying away from civilization. 

That was seven years ago.  Whatever happened to that guy?

And do you suppose, in his most private moments, he feels like a complete tool?

    You do watch a lot of animated television programs, don’t you? Then again, I know what you’re talking about, so I guess I watch them too.Five bucks says O’Rourke was half in the bag already and y2k was just his excuse to go full-on nutty.

    O’Rourke was the youth counselor at the Presbyterian Middle School I attended. He was an ex-running back at Vanderbilt. I don’t remember him being especially wacky back then, but it appears he did go full-on bat shit crazy.Thanks for the update.
