Taylor felt life was pretty good. Sure, living in an underground bunker developing more sophisticated weapons to bomb the Soviets was less than ideal. But he had a pretty wife, and he was safe from the radioactive poisoned environment that existed above ground. The leadies, sophisticated robot servants, could inform them of the devastating destruction, the bombed out cities, and the further Soviet attacks. But it was a strange fact that the latest leadie to return to the bunker showed no sign of radioactivity. Strange enough for Taylor to be ordered above ground in a lead-lined suit to investigate. That Taylor didn't want to go, wasn't really an option!

    " Roughly written, but it works as a short story. "

    " Yeah but no. "Classic" science fiction story about world destruction via nuclear arms, Russia, robots, and moral lessons. Nothing intriguing now, and I can't imagine that the story was anything groundbreaking at its time of publication either. When people say PK Dick is hit or miss, they're using stories like this in the 'miss' category. "

    " All right, a positive book about robots! Sure, they're against us, but it's for our collective good, really. A truly thought-provoking short story. "
