Too much news today displays a lack of love...

That errant satellite will get no loving embrace from the atmosphere; instead, it will be blown up by missile.

A witch in Saudi Arabia received no love from the judicial system; instead, she will be executed.

The story of the love of one male penguin for another male penguin gets no love from the school district; instead, it will be banned.

The goddess of love gets no love from the Tube; instead, she is banned.

Disneyland's House of the Future was a Shag-a-riffic pad, with futuristic conveniences like an oven that heats food through the use of microwaves (an invisible band of the electromagnetic spectrum with wavelengths shorter than radio waves), or a bigger-than-life television set so thin it hardly takes up any space. But the House got no love, having been demolished in 1967. Instead, Disney has announced a new House of the Future that "will look like a suburban tract home." Um. Yay?

Its oddities included handsfree phones, wall-sized televisions and electric razors.

Now that's just crazy talk! Lol!

No kiddin'. Lots more photos and design drawings here.

Somehow, this picture suggests to me that Mrs. Robinson probably enjoyed a few Valiums & scotches in her House of the Future.
