Truth And Consequences

Imagine you're in a television station newsroom and you've just been given an
assignment. It's about a blowout in an oil well and you have to have it on air tonight.
The story has been rolling for a couple of months, and it's time for a new angle. You instantly
think of something dramatic like "Extinction Level Event." But you know that won't fly.
It stands to reason that television without pictures is like newspapers without print so the first
thing you do is begin visualizing the images you'll need to cover the story.
(Everybody imagines some sort of movie in their mind when they're talking or listening or
reading. So listen up and turn on your inner DVD player as we get to the story about the
future - including several variations on a theme.)
For a catch-line or "slug," we'll do our usual play on words and we'll call it something like
"S...oiling Ourselves."
