This is a Frightening Thought

I'd not thought of this, but it does make some sense (from the comments).
Predicted along with flying cars (still waiting!), mars colonies, and single pill dietary needs was the "super learning" drug. Take a pill and you only need to be told something once to retain it forever. 

We didn't stop to think the corollary to "super learning" was "instantly convinced" of anything you are told.
 I'm out of town on an extended stay in Cleveland - will be back by Thursday, if not sooner. I'm also avoiding my revisions. Right now, I'm just doing a lot of thinking - not all that much writing things down. I've done that before, right before diving into work. I can't force it, right now.

I'm not so sure about that. I've been told many things, many times, and I remember a lot of them. Doesn't mean I believe them.

'Twould depend on the drug I suppose.

Cleveland, eh? The booster club calls in the Greatest Location in the Nation, but others call it the Mistake on the Lake. In any case I grew up South of there in a town called Stow. Be sure to visit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and it you get a change, get down to Canton, OH to visit the Football Hall of Fame. The President Garfield house is in Mentor just to the East. There are several historic sites in Akron as well.

President Reagan preferred Cleveland too.
