Alternate Earths

43. Howard Stern's Earth

On this Earth, the youth of the United States took over in 1980 when it was determined that the Social Security System stood to bankrupt the economy, the environment was a mess, and the nuclear arms race threatened the entire planet. Jimmy Carter lost the election in 1980 to Howard Stern, a talk radio host.

The first thing President Stern did was lower the voting age to nine. Because baby boomers had glutted the job market, workers are now required to retire and "get out of the way" by the age of thirty. Citizens over the age of thirty are now, for all intents and purposes, second class citizens.

The Quinn Mallory and Wade Wells of this Earth work for Advanced Software Industries and have been promoting a questionable product called EduLearn as a replacement for the public school system. Alternate Quinn (who went by the initials Q.R.) was married to alternate Wade Wells until his recent death.
