A few hours after we posted REM singing “It’s The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) as an antidote to Saturday’s crazy apocalypse drama, we found a message from our friend Fern Berman on our answering machine:
“I think it’s the end of the world as we know it every single day. I mean…every day everything changes as we know it, right?
The reality is, the world changes. It doesn’t mean it’s going to end; it just changes.”
