Look - it's the Future! (or at least June 21, 2011)

(from the Century 21 Exposition department)

Hi everyone,

Just a quick photo I took during a sunny day in Seattle. (Yes - they do happen):

That's the Space Needle as seen through Fisher Plaza, headquarters of KOMO TV. Looks like the Future, doesn't it?


P.S. Looking at old photos of the Space Needle, I found this quote. I offer no additional comment:
The length of the monorail is a mere 1.2 miles long, but plans are already being discussed to extend the track all the way to Sea-Tac Airport. Since the Monorail can achieve speeds of up to 70 miles an hour, it's likely that gridlock and traffic jams will be a distant memory by the year 2001.
