|Uh, huh. The sort of vision
brought on by too much champagne and lobster before retiring.
Whatever the faults of Just Imagine's version of New York, it
was far better than this prediction from 1908. It's like
living in a weird combination of an Arab sukh
and the Grand Canyon with Piccadilly Circus stuck out on a bridge for
good measure. Also, take a look at the copy of the Bridge of
Sighs in the distance; the one that's about the size of the Houses of
Parliament. The really frightening thing is that you have no
idea of how high you are in this picture. Is that the ground
level in the distance, or does it just go on and on down like my
expectations of television programming?
