And now it's the past. As the Red Queen remarked, you've got to run as fast as you can to stay where you are. It also helps to believe seven impossible things before breakfast, like believing that breakfast is coming, that nuclear reactors can produce electricity and not just explosions; that silicon gizmos can get power from the sun, the television can be used to educate people, and that someday computers will help run a lot of the world.
Well, four out of five isn't bad -- I didn't have breakfast this morning, alas. It's hard to believe that this primitive-looking movie, that marvels at such commonplaces of today, which include videorecorders, electronic music and making phone calls with pictures -- was considered wacky sixty-four years ago. I was one year old at the time. Look out for the next wacky projection!
