End of days: Is Terry Gilliam the Anti-Christ?

David Seaton's News Links
As an analyst, viewing war and the real estate boom, death and destruction, starvation and opulence and then trying to make some sense of it all, my first duty is to take the affairs of the world seriously. However this is becoming a bit difficult lately.

More and more the writing of the destiny of our species seems to have slipped out of the hands of the Almighty and to have been outsourced to the genius of Monty Python.

The idea of combating Global Warming by placing giant mirrors in outer space is pure Terry Gilliam. It's as if Bush were inviting God to get a shave. Coming so close on our discovery that the director of the World Bank can't afford new socks....

I don't know about you, but I find this all very unsettling. Is the apocalypse going to be funny? DS
