Yesterday I e-mailed a colleague. She teaches history at MPOW and the class is doing some biographic studies. One of the people they're learning about is Pico della Mirandola. I'd never heard of him before Thursday. Then, yesterday, I was read a book that mentioned him - so I told her there's Something In the Air.
Today, it's a new book. One of the characters is from Guyana, and I just read a passage about going "up country", to the jungle and mass suicide. Then I checked my Bloglines and read this. I remember the news that day - first hearing about the deaths on the air strip, and then the mass deaths.
Something's in the air, indeed.
