Green New Year - Or Why I'm Confessing I'm Disappointed

I think there were two times this year that I read the comic pages in the local Tallahasee Democrat. I was catching up on a week's worth of papers today.

Sunday's paper summed up my years of discontent. Sally Forth's husband was complaining: "No jet packs, no flying cars, no food pills, no space vacations, no weather control devices, etc. It's like the future is never going to happen."

My biggest disappointment is no jet packs. I yearned for the year 2000 and the promise of my very own, private, jet pack. Green inventors everywhere: please, I long to fly high above congested roads powered by a pack on my back. Hydrogen, anyone?
