Greatest letter to the editor ever? (From The Economist, via reddit)
SIR – You were mistaken in thinking that California once elected a “cyborg as governor” (“Just a little local difficulty”, August 10th). A cyborg is an organism augmented with mechanical elements. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator was an android, a machine designed to replicate a human.
Although the two may seem interchangeable, Mr Schwarzenegger would have been hard pressed to portray the level of humanity needed to pass for a cyborg.
