The band played on

-A A +A

In early June, our minds were filled with visions of the coming summer months. Vacations to plan. Gardens to weed. Garages to clean out. As we soak up what’s left of the summer sun (and rejoice at the monsoons finally arriving), it’s difficult to even think back to June, isn’t it?  Well, let’s give it a shot.

June 7, 2010 — Steve Jobs introduces the latest iPhone to an Apple-hungry audience in San Francisco.  A frock worn by Princess Diana is put on the London’s Pall Mall auction block and is expected to fetch $72,000.  A remake of “The Karate Kid” starring Jackie Chan and Jaden Smith premieres in Hollywood.

Each of these news stories captured our attention.  With only three weeks notice, Apple fanatics began preparing chairs and sleeping bags for their line-standing vigil.  British who design their days around the lives of royalty held their breath at the chance of seeing a skirt worn by Diana sold to some rich commoner. And what better way to spice up our otherwise boring existence than yet another karate movie?
