The Future From The 50's Neal Mulligan neal JR,

I can remember sitting in the Paramount Theatre in Springfield in 55, and watching a News of the World short. It featured a story of a new proto-type jet that the navy was planning. The announcer told us that the plane was expected to be operational in 1963 and I thought: WHAT? That is so long from now it will never happen. Now I worry about SS running out of money 35 years from now.

Back then a month was an eternity.
