Are Robots the New Jerry Lewis?
Remember when the New York Times used to mention Jerry Lewis ALL THE TIME? I was so happy then. But now all they talk about is robots. Just earlier this week, you will recall, a robot sent an ominous message from the future via the New York Times. In today's paper, there is an article called "Students, Meet Your New Teacher, Mr. Robot." And in it, one guy is quoted as worrying about the day when robots will become our "masters." And he is serious, because this is the New York Times! Yet overall, the Times seems to be playing right into the hands of the robots, I am sorry to tell you.
