Future: News from the Year 2137

In robot-controlled CalifornieX, humans are forced into speed-dating programs to produce more slave offspring, while protesters in the Indiana Grimlands brave devastated city centers, coming out in full force to defeat a bill that would allow same-sex couples to wed. Internationally, the last remaining Israeli and Palestinian are still locked in battle, and completion of the world-destroying 'Doomsday Machine' has been delayed once again, sparking widespread outrage that life on earth will have to continue.
