In the continuing series "Martin announces the death, imminent demise, or imminent revival of cultural trends," I would like to turn now to irony.

Irony most certainly isn't dead. However, today I discovered a sign that it might be looking a bit down in the mouth. Maybe it's ill? Yes, the United States will during this coming year be withdrawing the "Peacekeeper" intercontinental ballistic missile from service.

That's right: the "Peacekeeper." Why do I only hear about these things when they stop being around?

Irony is dying! You heard it here first! Pass it on!
