Herb

From a fundraising letter for Sebastopol’s small private hospital, Palm Drive:

“In Northern California, Palm Drive has become a hub for delivering medical services through robots to remote hospitals.”

The letter left it rather mysterious. And I decided I liked it that way.

"Herb", by the way, is the name of Palm Drive's resident robot (robot resident?).

Huh. HERBIE is the name of the Fantastic Four's robot assistant. I guess Reed finally started marketing some of his inventions to the civilian population.
