Titles are definitely important.
$60 is too rich for my blood, but if it were in the library, I'd give it a peek.The picture of Jean Harlow NOT reading reminded me of the final scene in the movie "Dinner at Eight":Jean Harlow: "I was reading a book the other day--"Marie Dressler (stumbling in surprise): "You were reading a book?"Jean Harlow: "Yeah, a real nutty kind of a book. It said that in the future robots are going to take over all human functions."Marie Dressler: "Oh my dear, I think that's something you will never have to worry about."
That's a great line, Deb.Important, that's the scary part.
Turns out that Dressler's character was (eventually predictably) entirely wrong...that's just one of the functions that consumer robots of a sophistication greater than that of a Roomba are likely to be aimed at. Leaving aside those who can easily or gingerly satisfied thus by a Roomba.
Important but not by themselves the deal. I sense yet another opportunity for excessive pre-emptive worrying and second-guessing.
How do you know me so well? Not a title I'm thinking about for a ms. but now a story I'm thinking about writing.
