With the dollar surging over 42 pesos, the temperature rising over 40º C, and a soaring unstoppable inflation, maybe it’s a good idea to distract ourselves from anxiety by listening to the “Terraplanistas”, these guys who believe that our Planet is actually flat, as flat as John Locke’s “tabula rasa”. There are no more certainties. We’re at the mercy of huge conspiracies, according to these “flat earthers”.  We cannot trust anyone any longer. Let’s admit that our very first childhood shock was learning that The Three Wise Men and Santa were our parents. Then, another disappointment came: the 1968 moon landing could have been fake, a hoax staged by NASA.  What’s next, I wonder. I’d like to apologize to Copernicus, Galileo and Cristopher Columbus, particularly to the latter, since the first big Congress of “Terraplanistas” was held in Colón, Entre Ríos, of all places! What a nerve! Sigh…
