End the world as we know it ...

Sunday Herald - - EDITORIAL & LETTERS -

AH, it’s the end of the world! (If you are read­ing this then you sur­vived the apoc­a­lypse, News, Septem­ber 24). Run, duck and cover (al­though that’s hardly go­ing to help when that mys­te­ri­ous planet crashes into our own and de­stroys hu­man­ity). It’s a lot of non­sense, isn’t it? My ques­tion is why do we love such sto­ries? Does the idea of our des­tiny ly­ing in the hands of some­thing or some­one out­side of our con­trol make us feel bet­ter about not liv­ing our dreams? Does it soothe us as we sit around watch­ing trash TV? Prob­a­bly. Chris Miller Forbes Glas­gow
