"The World Without Us"

When: Tue., Sept. 8, 7:30 p.m. 2009

The Twilight Zone's "Time Enough at Last" marks the epitome of delicious, wretched irony. Burgess Meredith's bespectacled character desires only to constantly read. When an atomic bomb levels his city, he is the sole survivor and happily devotes himself to his books. Then his glasses break. For a less morbid but still fascinating look at a human-less planet, attend "The World Without Us," a free lecture from Alan Weisman at 7:30 tonight in CC's Armstrong Hall (14 E. Cache la Poudre St., coloradocollege.edu). Weisman will predict which of our daily accoutrements will last as fossils and which will disintegrate with time. — Edie Adelstein
