Re: Titantic

Derb — Very well said, but are you sure you meant to say it? Are you not the Doyen of Doom, the Guru of Gloom? Have you not time and again foretold that the celestial cake is baked, that nothing can blowback the dark clouds on the horizon and that the cold impersonal forces of nature are even written into our very genes? Now you are saying that, with enough pluck, a chipper spirit and can-do attitude anyone could have survived even the Titantic. I never took your for the type to say “And with your help, this can be the best yearbook ever!”
