Not dying, I think, but changing. Change is, if not constant, inevitable.
Palaeontologist Stephen Jay Gould came up with the concept of "punctuated
equilibrium"-- imperceptibly slow change punctuated by episodes of rapid,
revolutionary change -- to describe the evolution of living things in
nature. This description fits the history and progress of our own species
Eyeheart -- I refuse to use their ridiculous spelling -- is a publicly
held company driven, as usual, by short-term financial goals that have
nothing to do with serving Boston or any of the other communities they are
licensed to serve. Announcers and journalists are just so many assets to
be used and discarded as corporate management sees fit.
Meanwhile, in the upper Connecticut valley, my brother and I are trying to
do right by the communities we serve, using the scant resources we have.
It's not easy.
