We've Come A Long Way Since Yesterday

"Just suppose one of those blue Mondays when you're sighing for the "good old days," as we all do now and then…Just suppose that a genie comes steaming up out of your television set, or popping out of your automatic toaster…and he fixes you with his fiery eyes and says: "O.K., you asked for it. Let's see how you like it!" Forthwith, you are transported into the past. But instead of gliding effortlessly along through the air in a plane, you're riding in a cumbersome Conestoga wagon drawn by horses." 

Good Reading Rack Service, 1958
