Whatever happened to the future predicted by the Jetsons cartoon series? As a child I thought science-type people would help create a world of comfort and leisure.

Seriously. NO! I don't like a doctor's hands touching my body, but i like cold metal robot hands less. And how is a robot going to defend itself in court when there's a malpractice suit? eh?
