This story occurs in the spring of 2001, a year I'd dreamed of since elementary school. But the technological changes predicted in the science fiction of my childhood and adolescence are nothing like the "hi-tech" I'm living with now. There are no one-man jets cruising the skies; no robots running my errands or cooking my dinner; no tele-transportation; and, on the political scene, no Big Brother. My personal 2001 "future" is primarily marked by instantaneous access to information and "real time" communication with the late 20th Century's "killer app" - email. Email -- telegraphic, spontaneous, unnuanced, is about to cause a great deal of trouble in my own life.
