Today, Dueling Romdroids!

Ah, the meme of the Mad Scientist — Dr. Wilbur von Philbert — is the supreme architect of the flip-flopping Dumbo front-runner. Big Love (with his polygynist ancestors in Mexico) is best explained as having an evil twin. The Dumbo campaign spectacle is mindful of a visit to London's Bethlem Royal Hospital (aka Bedlam) to view the antics of mentally ill patients. Wikipedia teaches us that

"...In the 18th century people used to go to Bedlam to stare at the lunatics. For a penny one could peer into their cells, view the freaks of the "show of Bethlehem" and laugh at their antics. Entry was free on the first Tuesday of the month. In 1814 alone, there were 96,000 such visits."

What truth will Newtron reveal? If this is (fair & balanced) science fiction, so be it.
