The end of the world?

For three days in a row now, The Wall Street Journal has run page one stories knocking the props out from under a different pillar of what has passed for Universal Truth in our times.

Today, it was “Republicans Grow Skeptical on Free Trade" (at right).

Wednesday it was “Wal-Mart Era Wanes Amid Big Shifts in Retail: Rivals Find Strategies To Defeat Low Prices; World Has Changed.”

Tuesday it was “GOP Is Losing Grip on Core Business Vote: Deficit Hawks Defect as Social Issues Prevail; ‘The Party Left Me.’”

What could possibly be next? Is this the end of the world as we have known it?

Here’s your chance to help join in. Write a headline for the next big change you think is going to happen or you would like to see happen. You write it, we’ll post it.
