Beautiful Ensley Township is known throughout the world for the grizzly murder that will be committed forty years from now in 1968. The smog is so thick it acts like snow. You make a little smog man and toss a couple of smog balls at a passing stranger. The stranger punches you in the nose and you bleed all over your new shirt. You wisely decide to mind your own business.

A newspaper blows by. It’s from the future and the cover story claims that a murder, which hasn’t been committed yet, has finally been solved. You see the Bat Bus ready to take off back to downtown Birmingham. You also see a neon sign flashing on and off in the distance through the fog, it’s advertising alcohol.
