L.a. 2013

May 15, 1988

Thanks for "L.A. 2013: A Day in the Life," by Nicole Yorkin (April 3). By printing it you rendered a valuable service--confirming my feeling that L.A. is not a place in which I wish to be living in the year 2013. And what did your article portray? A society with a childish fascination for (and dependence on) technology and its "wonders," a fatalistic attitude toward overcrowding and environmental problems, and a slavish dedication to economic and political philosophies that are no longer supportable.

We do have the power to shape our future. I only hope that between now and the year 2013 we can develop the wisdom that your consultants failed to demonstrate in their projections.
