    Is the death of Dick Clark warning us that there will be no New Years Eve 2013?

      With all of the 2012 apocalypse talk and doomsday preppers who are sure that this will be the last year for the Earth and human civilization, it seems to fit with the agenda that Dick Clark (the prolific ABC tv personality who hosted New Year's Rockin Eve since 1972) should pass away.  Could this be a sign that the world will not be around to see the New York Times Square New Years Eve 2013 celebration?  Or will we simply watch the ball drop and sing Auld Lang Syne with Ryan Seacrest thankful that the Mayans had it all wrong?

    It's not a warning.  It's a reminder to be thankful we have another new year to celebrate.  Ryan Seacrest can be entertaining, but he's no Dick Clark.

    Of course, how else could it be that he dies now? If it were coincidence he would have died last year, right?
    But a more convincing sign would have been his death just before the solstice date - which is still before the New Year.
    Then again - hey the guy was old and survived heart problems 6-7 years ago, it was coming and the timing of his death was not all that significant in the cosmic scheme....
    Good writers like to forseshadow however, maybe our universe does too.

    Yes Irbo, that is one I am getting at - foreshadowing.  Could the death of Dick Clark be an ominous sign rather than mere coincidence.  I do not believe much of anything is merely coincidence anymore.
