Ticky-Tac Houses, All in A Row...

Population boom spawns super cities

"...Sports rivalries aside, the world is no longer about towns, cities, counties, metropolitan areas or even states. Those traditional boundaries may become even more parochial as a booming nation of 295 million braces for another 125 million people by 2050."

Yes, but in this brave new world will we finally have the imposition of a Shirly Jackson style lottery to randomly dispense justice and ensure good harvests?

I always loved The Lottery.
 
Everyone loved "The Lottery". I think it's the only short story I remember from middle school....

More than the story, I love any pop culture reference to it....
