The USA in 2076

In 1976, on the occasion of the US bicentennial, The Grand Prairie Daily News asked readers what America would look like in 2076 for the tricentennial celebration. That's less than 60 years away now, and their visions of the future seems as out-of-reach as ever. The picture above imagines The Jetsons come to life, but many of the responses warn of the dangers of war and pollution. That's not surprising, because in 1976, pollution was the most evident environmental threat, and we had just finished with the second longest and second most divisive war in American history. Read the letters that predicted life in 2076 at Flashbak.  -Thanks, WTM!
