One of Life's Little Lessons, Happening Still

My agent and friend Steve Malk texted me this photo alerting me to the headline:

obsolesence500.jpg

My first thought, being the paranoid narcissist that I am, was the extremely unlikely and rather alarming one that Barbara Ehrenreich had written an article about my own obsolescence, somehow, for some reason. In fact, of course it's nothing to do with me: it's about robots taking everyone's jobs. But after a little thought I realized what he was getting at, which is that one of my old songs, "The Dustbin of History," has the line "welcome to obsolescence." Small world, or something.
