Like an apolitical Andrew Breitbart, the Amazing Criswell used to live in L.A. and make things up. Over at this week's Studies in Crap on our Style Council blog, you can relish the most baffling of Criswell's predictions for the 1970s, selected from his book Criswell Predicts Your Next Ten Years as well as his occasional pieces in the Times.

Besides public executions sponsored by the gas company, he promised:

“I predict you will be shocked when our American Astronauts find the ruins of a lost civilization in a remote section of the moon!”


“I predict that students will call attention to their demonstrations with the hurling of pet dogs and cats into bonfires to 'spite' the American way of life!”

And oh-so-very-much more, over on Studies in Crap!
