The notable thing about this cartoon to me is how quickly it has become outmoded. Today, young people would text, or tweet, or…¬†well, I hate to admit it, but I’m not sure what all they’d do before they’d resort to clunky old e-mail. And e-mail seemed so incredible such a short time ago.

Also, note how¬†closely Gene’s fantasy correspondent resembles the future version of Mary Lou.
