There Will Come Soft Rains

       Yesterday's post about the fake news of the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists advancing the imaginary minute hand of the imaginary Doomsday Clock towards an imaginary apocalypse because of the imaginary threat Donald Trump allegedly poses to civilization brought to mind a favorite imaginary short story by Ray Bradbury.
      Describing the story o “There Will Come Soft Rains” would rob the impact of the linked video. Suffice to say, the story was written in in 1950 during the early days of the Cold War and the recent mention of the Doomsday Clock brought it to mind. I am sure you can fill in enough blanks to get the gist of the it. 
       The video above is an an animated produced in 1984 by the soviet animation studio Uzbekfilm. The animated short is not entirely faithful to Bradbury's original story, but it is still both impressive and moving. After watching, appreciate it was created by supposed godless commies from the Soviet Union.
