Reading the wikipedia article reminded me that I had read that story, quite a long time ago. I've read much of Asimov's works, although I found some of it to be less enjoyable on rereading past, say, 40 ;).

Had I read the article before voting, I would have said "no," because that would bring the human-robot morality into the starkest contrast: Byerly was accused of being a robot because he was too good to be human.
