Sometimes it seems that life in this age of technology is nothing but one announcement after another. At times, the text message, cell phone call, or email announces happy news -- the arrival of a long-awaited new baby in the family, for example. At other times, the announcement might elicit a shudder or groan -- as in much of the daily news blasted at us via...just insert your preferred form of media. We need only consider the current tense state of world affairs to bring home that point.
