Irony about "The Obsolete Man," a chapter from "The Twillight Zone"

June 1961,
Kennedy have only been in office 5 months,
but Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" had been in circulation for almost 8 years.

With a touch of Greek Drama,
Rod Serling wrote this episode and featured one of his favorite leading men,
Burgess Meredith;

How ironic that our hero's first name is ROMNEY?!?

While some episodes of "The Twilight Zone" suffered from verbose padding,
this episode leads to a chilling conclusion in glorious black & white...
proof that half of art is knowing when to stop.
