Usually, while writing my column, I’m projecting myself 30 - 45 days into the future. Normally I’m trying to visualize when the paper will hit your mailbox and what will be going on in your life at that time and I try to write something topical. Every now and then I even get it right. Today is different though. Today, I’m only projecting myself 5 days into the future. Today is March 5, 2010.
