Thom Friedman's Time Problem

For those who know me know that I have an infinity problem/phobia, which my students have informed me is called apeirophobia. In a constant effort to get me off track my students have become very ingenious in freaking me out with new ways to conceptualize endlessness. For instance this year they uncovered for me the idea that fractions go on for infinity as well as negative numbers and the past. So now my phobia has expanded three fold! Unfortunately FAIR has now pointed out to me a fourth dimension to infinity, the Thomas Friedman Iraqi crucial, no critical, next six months. No wonder he wins all of those Pulitzer's.
