When I saw the trailer for the new Justin Timberlake film, In Time, I dimly recalled that I had read a short Sci-Fi story in which every one had a certain amount of time allotted to them, which amount was displayed on them in some way.  Turns out I saw thinking of Harlan Ellison’s ‘Repent Harlequin! Said the TickTockMan.”  Apparently Harlan Ellison was reminded of it as well.  Coverage here.
