Then, suddenly, none of that seemed to be verifiably so anymore, as though our lives up to somewhere around 1980 didn't happen, as though two sphinxes had never guarded the causeway to the pyramids at Giza... just everything in the public space suddenly ignored select things that had been tending toward the dawning of a new golden age.

always and any time....
