Jeff R.:XIII: Death

The moments that are universally remembered by a generation as a turning point are almost always drenched in blood and death: assassinations, attacks like Pearl Harbor or 9/11. The explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger is the dominant such event, derailing America's manefest destiny in space.

This happened in 1986, the same year Mike Tyson first won a world title and Chernobyl spilled wormwood across Europe. What I tell you three times is true: This is no coincidence.

It is sometimes said that death is simply a metaphor for change. The truth is that it's exactly the other way around.
