A:
Hi Mehran,

Yes, the subject line says it all -- it's called "The Terminator". In fact, I was such a geeky science nerd, that when the movie of that name came out in 1984, and I heard it was science fiction, that's what I thought it was about (before I actually saw the movie). Silly me.

Maybe it's the dividing line between Democrats and Republicans.
