I’ve never seen anything like this before…..February 5th, 2010
Have you been hearing people say that? Maybe even said it yourself?
Today, there were five stories on the front page of the L.A. Times and two of them quoted individuals saying exactly that.
Mark Weiss, who works in the medical field, commenting on Anthem Blue Cross raising their rates by up to 39% said “I’ve never seen anything like this.”
This one was about the brown pelicans that are starving to death. Roy Lowe, from the Oregon Coast National Wildlife Refuge Complex said: “We have never seen that before.”
When 2/5–and that’s 40%–of the front page of the L.A. Times are covering unprecedented phenomena, you know you are living in unusual times.
In fact, I’ve never seen anything like it.
