8/1-THE MEN WATCHING THE FIRST STEAM SHOVEL AT THE CONSTRUCTION SITE WARNED, “THIS MONSTER CAN DO THE WORK OF A HUNDRED MEN WITH SHOVELS.” “YES,” CHIMED IN A BYSTANDER. “OR TEN THOUSAND MEN WITH TEASPOONS!”
Every boy who read comic books knew about the fearsome robots who could do the work of hundreds of workers, never demand one penny in pay, missed only minutes and not days when “sick” and in need of repair and never thought of demanding longer coffee breaks.

Grigonis visits with Sara and Barry this evening.
