Things Fall Apart; . .

. . . the center cannot hold.

Everything seemingly is spinning out of control - Yahoo! News: "WASHINGTON - Is everything spinning out of control?

Midwestern levees are bursting. Polar bears are adrift. Gas prices are skyrocketing. Home values are abysmal. Air fares, college tuition and health care border on unaffordable. Wars without end rage in Iraq, Afghanistan and against terrorism."

Wasn't that a Ron Goulart novel, After Things Fall Apart, set after the collapse of the USA?
