It truly is. Just ask anyone. One day is bright and sunny, the next a twister runs through the middle of the town.
Houses to the left of you, houses to the right of you, get demolished. But your house, not a scratch.
It truly is a Mad Mad Mad Mad World. A few years ago, I was lucky to be able just to connect with a 2400-baud modem from a hotel room to my ISP. Today, high-speed access, either by hardwire or wireless is everywhere.
I was just in Miami attending an international conference. People from all over the world turned on their laptops, and connected to their e-mail, the web or their offices.
I, on the other hand, abhor carrying bags, briefcases and cargo. So, I came to the conference notebook-less. But, I did go with my Treo, a combination Cellphone and Palm Pilot.
