Musings on the 20th Century

One can only feel a little sad seeing one's birth year preceded by the preposition "circa." 

Implying that the reader does not commonly come across that year any longer, that it now belongs to the Ages.

You know.  Like when the Romans wrote "One can only feel...."

One would never expect to see that usage in a tweet.

Which, one might think, is all for the good.

Excuse me.  Time for my Metamucil.
