Jericho, Dead, Sarah Conner, Alive and Kicking

I am noticing the number of posts about death lately; Arthur C. Clarke, F, Marry, Kill and Star Trek Caskets. And yet, here I am again reveling in MY predicted demise of Jericho. Well, not so much reveling as the sage nod of the bald head with a softly spoken “It was pre-ordained”. I mean, lets […]

It’s one of the great […]
