Siberia's new lover was the hit of her little party. The rich and the beautiful swarmed all over him.
A rich-and-beautiful robot asked the Cardinal if robots have souls.
"Some do and some don't," he answered. "Just like people."
"What about Ranger Diode?" someone asked.
"A good example of a distributed personality," he said. "With one consciousness spread over many bodies, Ranger Diode has one collective soul -- like an ant colony."
"May his collective soul burn in mechanical hell," I muttered.
"Amen," said the Cardinal.
