Donald Trump triumphant!

I just read a so so sci-fi novel called Flash Forward. It was once a TV series, one I really liked (and that usually guarantees cancellation. The Unusuals, Jericho, Detroit 1-8-7. Ah well.) The series took  the premise of the book and made it exciting and dramatic – which is why I stayed with the book  hoping it would get better. It didn’t. A terrific fictional premise underexploited.

But I did come away with this little gem. Within a list of  things that will be true in 2030 was this:

Donald Trump was building a pyramid in the Nevada desert to house his eventual remains. When done, it will be ten meters taller than the Great Pyramid at Giza.

Giggle, giggle.
