Unlike most stories about the future, this isn’t science fiction. The focus here is on what life will actually be like in 2017. And nobody, at least nobody with any credibility or a research grant, is predicting flying cars or a robot-ruled world in 10 years.
I FOUND this week’s cover of Maclean’s featuring President Bush depicted as Saddam Hussein to be highly offensive. It is entirely appropriate to have a free and lively debate about the situation in Iraq. But equating President Bush, who is committed to democracy and freedom throughout the world, to a dictator who was tried and convicted of the mass murder of his own people is reprehensible and should be below Maclean’s standards.
