The Global Village

Three big planes off to other parts of the world.  We are a global village – that was the determination of Marshall McLuhan 40 years ago.  The 3 R’s have been replaced by the 3 T’s…travel, technology and television.  The third T might be replaced now by the internet.  Did you know that Marshall McLuhan also predicted the World Wide Web 30 years before it was invented.

At the airport I looked out upon these three planes loading passengers for their journey.  Where are they going?  I suppose I could assume the Air Jamaica flight is going to Jamaica!

Me?  I was going to Regina – a mild minus 18 when I got there.  Not bad for mid January!
