Ray Bradbury's "March 2000: The Taxpayer" (flash fiction, humor)

Story summary.

Set on earth, with third Martian expedition ready to go - even though the first 2 have vanished.

Story is crazy ravings of a man, but perhaps is intended to set the mood for later stories - he's concerned about looming atomic war that is likely to happen within 2 years, & would rather get away from earth.

Collected in.
