Is Time Travel a thing of the past?

What was the best thing BEFORE sliced Bread?

The best thing before sliced bread? Hardtack aboard a British naval vessel or a soldier (either side) either side in the American Civil War.

The Chicken didn't cross the road. It was hit by a semi! OUCH!

Before the Ramones, there was Giacomo Puccini. My father will ask about a popular musical group. We'll tell him, don't worry Dad, it's Post Puccini.
(Puccini died in 1929).

Actually George, I figured Vilna, Prague, Zagreb, and Belgrade would be the final for for the renamed IBA. The Bulls will move to New York and become the New York Bulls, named for the Stock Exchange. The Washington Wizards will be renamed the Nationals (like the baseball team) and will also be owned by an International Conglomorate.

The Rucker Basketball tournament in Harlem will be bought by Ted Turner and moved to Atlanta. Ted Turner now owns Hartsdale Airport and brings athletes in from everywhere. Turner has junior teams worldwide. The Atlanta Hawks are now the third major team in the United States, but still are no competition for the Eastern European teams.

Former President Condoleeza Rice (sorry ladies) got her wish and is now the Commissioner of the National Football League, which is spreading worldwide. She is responsible for youth teams in every country on the planet. Most Offensive Linemen are Samoans and failed Japanese Sumo wrestlers. The greatest quarterback ever is Chinese, brilliant and can throw accurate spirals from one end zone to the other.
There is complete parity in the NFL. There are teams in cities like Tucson and Shreveport, Louisiana.

Baseball? Hmmmmmm.

Actually January 15th, 2029 will be a serious day. The 100th Anniversary of the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King.
Since this is a site which is supposed to bring people together, honoring Dr. King might not be a bad idea. (A recent poll showed him to be one of the top five greatest Americans).

On a lighter note, I had to laugh. I received a letter in the mail from a publisher in Ireland. It was for a magazine called International Living. It is mostly for people retiring in other places. I had to laugh. I am at least ten years away from even THINKING like that.
Part of my reason for living here, is retirement to Mexico or Costa Rica if need be.

One important question about the future in 2029: will wearing socks with sandles still be a crime?
