Foreseeable future to end soon

According to experts, the the foreseeable future will end on June 16, 2003. On that date, all previous plans and prospective outlooks that have invoked the phrase “for the foreseeable future” will become effectively moot, and according to noted chronologist Timothy Etravel, “all bets will be off.” The foreseeable future began on February 3, 1999. “Even back then, we knew it would only last about four years,” said Etravel, “yet it still comes as a bit of a shock to us now to realize how close we are to the end.” Looking ahead, Etravel advised, “there is no real reason to worry. Everything should be continuing on pretty much as normal, at least, that is, for the foreseeable future.”
