PILLS vs. PLANES

I'll be flying in an airplane a few more times, at least. It seems that while living on the West Coast, it is next to impossible to travel efficiently to the Midwest or East Coast by ground.
I think about airplanes and wonder if, in the future, my kids will look at the movies of the monster metal birds and feel the way I do when I see those pictures of the burning blimp. They'll have these airtubes that take my children to Europe at warp speed. They'll feel just like a waterslide, the only injuries being a bruised heel or a skinned knee.
They might look back on some drugs, say maybe Prozac or Asprin or St. John's Wort, and see four-fifths of the population of the US walking around with rubber limbs and they'll teach kids in Med School about all the mistakes of the past.
But it seems I'll have to fly a few more times, at least.
