Los Angeles: June 2002

LA Weekly has an amusing online feature this week. It has reprinted articles that appeared in a 1979 edition of the weekly Los Angeles-based publication that highlighted what Los Angeles would be like in the year 2002.

Particularly entertaining are the predictions held in the Dominic Sicilia piece, Los Angeles: June 2002. Some predictions made were that America would achieve zero-population growth, record companies would own rights to distribute legalized marijuana, and that large entertainment conglomerates would be persuaded to invest heavily into colleges and universities (yeah, right!). Some of the predictions, however, are eerily on the mark. It's definitely worth a read.
