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."

"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.
