I seem to recall a similar concept in the Dallas Morning News comic page Baldo where one student (due to immunological illness) went to school via robot.
@MisterMean Yes, Baldo did do a number of comic strips featuring a Rayna the robot that looks strikingly like VGo :)
@MisterMean That's odd. I seem to recall a Bob Marley and the Wailers song all about "we gonna chase those crazy baldheads outta the town". I always seemed to think that had something to do with the skinheads prevalent in Deep Ellum in the 1980s, and if I'm not wrong, nary a peep from the conservatrons at DMN. The somewhat admirable individual (and Liberal) entrepreneurs, with some help from myself and my friends, are the ones responsible for getting the police involved in getting those early incarnations of the Tea Party out of one of the few organic and independently operated entertainment districts the city of Dallas ever had. Crazy baldheads is exactly what I'd call those misbegotten extremists, and many Dallas cops would agree with us. I have a bunch of stories to tell about being blond and blue-eyed and getting the Nazi salute from those idiot-heads.
Baldo? Right about robotic. Mechanized. Wehrmacht. The notion that Nazis were Liberals is simply another "fictional reality" from the mind of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin, the woman who wore black leather jackets but never went to South Central Los Angeles with it.
@gordonhilgers Let me see if I can reiterate (re state) my original comment:
1) the article talks about the use of robotics (a robot) for Lyndon Baty to be able to attend his school. Also about the history of why he can not attend school in person due to his health.
2) I mentioned the comic pages in the Dallas Morning News-they appear in the Arts & Life section. There are 2 and 1/2 pages. B.C., Blondie, Crankshaft, Curtis, Dilbert etc. They appear every day.
3) on the 1/2 page of comics is a comic written by Hector Cantu and Carlos Castellanos. The main character is a teenage male named Baldo. He lives with his father, his Tia (aunt) and his little sister. The NAME OF THE STRIP IS BALDO! Baldo is Hispanic. He has a friend who he hangs out with who, a few weeks ago, dated a girl who, much like Lyndon Baty, could not attend school due to health reasons. She too was able to attend school by a robot. There were several days worth of comic strips dealing with how the young lady and Baldo's friend "dated".
4) In my comment it was my intention to draw the parallels between this comic strip and real life of Lyndon Baty.
It must have gone over your head. I do not know where you came up with your response. It is really off the wall!
