The story might be considered a little predictable, but something to keep in mind is when this was first published, in the early 1950s. The ideas in this story were way ahead of their time.
Overall, it\'s a nice, quick read, with a simple message (if you can see it; most can\'t) that Waldo Boyd tried to teach me as I was growing up. Did I mention he\'s my grandfather?

A rather predictable story about a rich boor in a robot store wanting to get a demonstration of a robot.
