OUR OBSESSION WITH AWARENESS

America seems to have an obsession with awareness. As I drove down Washington Avenue in Cedarburg last week I observed a sign declaring October 21 to October 27 as National Massage Therapist Awareness Week. I must admit being a little nonplussed at first. I wasn’t quite sure whether, the next time I see a massage therapist, I should buy a Hallmark card or call the police. After all, October is also National Cyber Security Awareness Month. In as much as there is also an Alcohol Awareness Month (April) and an Eating Disorders Awareness Week (February 24 – March 1), and in light of the fact that the massage therapist is just down the street from Otto’s Beverage Center, I wondered if they are both aware of each other. It seems, however, that Massage Therapy Awareness Week is different from Oral Cancer Awareness Week (April 11 – 17) or National Headache Awareness Week (June 11 – 17), as I assume that massage therapy is a good thing and the others are bad – unless you are a married woman and it is important for your husband to be aware of your headache as you crawl into bed.

CO2 IS OUR FRIEND

It was colder last Thursday in Port Huron, Michigan than it has been in more than seven decades. Daytona Beach, Florida set an all-time low temperature of 58°. Cold temperature records were broken this year in Idaho, Wyoming, North Dakota and Colorado. Similar records were broken in the United Kingdom, Canada, Central Europe, France, and Italy. Here in Ozaukee County, August treated us to an evening of 46° along Lake Michigan, nearly breaking a record low set all the way back in 1892. All of this after global warming/anti-capitalists wrongly predicted – once again – more hurricanes, a loss of Antarctic ice, and record high temperatures. Geez, it’s gotta be embarrassing.
