TEOTWAWKI! It’s the end of the world as we know it.

I see no mention of women and minorities being hardest hit, that can't be a real NYT cover.

NYT would also need a gay angle on the end of the world.

Gays, women, persons of color hardest hit

NPR host Terry Gross's last show would be ONLY about how the end of the world "impacts" gays.

Christopher Taylor, that line came from (believe it or not) Mort Sahl, in the '50s when he commented "The last headline of the San Francisco Chronicle will be 'World Ends, Women and Minorities Hardest Hit.'"

And it was funnier, of course, because he said it at the hungry i in SF.

Its the New York Times. Somehow they are going to blame the Republicans for forcing the Democrats to cut spending on an anti-asteroid space program, and the NRA for forcing the Democrats to confiscate anti-zombie guns.
