Fowler has to watch out, though, for immigrant labor. I hear if you hire "illegals," the really desperate ones, you can assassinate the sickly at $2 a pop.

Forget the immigrants, it sounds like a computer could simply sit there and cut people's policies. Then Fowler herself would be out of a job and ergo out of health insurance... bitter irony.

For an interesting account of how computer technology may be almost ready to replace even what we think of as high-level professional jobs, see Marshall Brain's novel, "Manna" (free on the Internet)
