Seriously, this story reminds me of BLUE, a pool cleaning machine that evolved, and one other story that I read some years ago, maybe in this Zine, where the robot war machine had similar thoughts observations and the like working with a human counterpart.

Cool story none the less.

In Mr. Lytle’s world, politics seem universal. I enjoyed the character of Professor Pheebus.

Whoa! Another surprise ending . . . they're all over this issue, I guess. Another good one, too, except for feeling a little rushed at the end.

I'm reminded of a very old piece of advice--it's been said in a lot of ways, but the one that came to me was a part of a song lyric (from "To Kingdom Come" by Robbie Robertson, off the Music from Big Pink album):

Just be careful what you do
It all comes back on you.


I think that says enough.

It's a karma story. As the Hindus and Buddhists would say:

What goes around, comes around .

Got to say we probably deserved it.
