It's a Wonderful Life: 01/01/08
The second story in the January issue is a holiday story aptly called "It's a Wonderful Life." It follows the day to day drudge of a janitor an film buffed named Cal (who just as aptly happens to work for Berkeley labs).
On a bleak day just before Christmas, Cal asks a couple of "lab rats" what they should do if they are working on time travel. Do they go for the big events like Genghis Kahn or they spend their efforts on making the little things in life more livable like better casting calls in movies?
When it becomes obvious to Cal that yet another experiment has failed and they will soon be closing down the program, he takes matters in his own hand. So what does Cal decide to change and was it worth the effort? Cal seem to think so but then he's a Superman fan too.
