1984 All Over Again

I like irony. I find delicious irony in the fact that one of the books that Amazon recently automatically wiped from people’s Kindle was George Orwell’s 1984. (That link begs the question, if I can read 1984 free online, why couldn’t one keep a paid copy on their Kindle?) A few weeks ago I celebrated with my high school classmates the 25 years since we graduated in 1984. Sadly, it is beginning to look like Orwell’s prediction for 1984 could only be off by 50 years (or less).
