This was made for the theme show "Living With Doom". The premise was that from the relentless stream of bad news and the resulting anaconda coiling upon our spirit, how will we face the future?

Here a man and a woman, taken from the gold plaque aboard the Pioneer 7 spacecraft—which has left the solar system. Are they waving hello or goodbye as they flap their jaws on cellphones? The marching mass passes below. All are consoled in their destiny by pharmaceutical gods.
