Barack to the Future

By Cassie Jeong

Dear President Barack Obama,

A flying taxicab greets Marty McFly mere seconds after he travels to his hometown of Hill Valley, California, in the year 2015. We are less than three years away from the future as depicted by the 1989 movie “Back to the Future Part II”, and I trust you will do everything in your power to make it a reality.

When Marty causes a hoverboard crash, authorities arrive immediately on scene, indicating a stronger police presence. I’m relieved you plan to address these airbourne accidents, but wonder how you will handle other threats to public safety, such as the to-be pressing issue of time travelers altering history in their favor.

Your presidency has proved beneficial to holographic technology. CNN’s 2008 presidential election coverage famously featured a holographic correspondent, and Tupac was revived via holograph at Coachella in 2012. It is not a stretch to expect holographic sharks, like the one that leaps out at Marty from a billboard, in our future.

Finally, a still living Michael Jackson is shown on a television Marty passes. Your administration’s plans to resurrect the King of Pop is a worthy endeavor, and I salute you.

Though chronology is irrelevant when one owns a time-traveling DeLorean, I expect your next four years as president to warrant a “Great Scott!”♦

Yours anticipatingly,

Cassie Jeong
