Stepping Into the Stream

There are a couple of good things about getting old. First, there are senior discounts. Take 'em while you can.
Second, it's easier to get away with being a grouch. And there are a lot of things to be grouchy about today.
So, by way of introduction, I was born a little bit before the middle of the last century, avidly read about the coming scientific marvels, and I still wonder whatever happened to the personal helicoptors they promised us for every garage. Where are our colonies on the moon or Mars, for example? Nope. We're still trapped in the same mundane world. But, it beats the alternative I guess.
So, let's just try to have fun where we are. And, by the way, happy 86th Birthday to Ray Bradbury.
