An interfering Jewish mom helps her son solve an interplanetary crisis.
This is a silly, silly story. It may be useful for a bit of a laugh—or, more, a slight chuckle—but that’s about it. The one character who is even faintly memorable here is such a stereotype that Asimov didn’t have to even blink to conjure her up. Rather a disappointment, despite the fact that the actual crisis and its solution are, in fact, faintly interesting.
