    FUTURE SHOCK was required reading when I was in high school.

    Toffler’s shortest definition of future shock is a personal perception of “too much change in too short a period of time”.

    This Thanksgiving, let us solemnly remember what one Native person said to another while watching the pilgrims arrive.
    “There goes the neighborhood.”
