AI wont be replacing KK any time soon - burglar alarm contract
            I've recently been introduced to AI and I admit I'm impressed.  But the fear among many that AI will be replacing all kinds of professionals is, as Mark Twain remarked regarding rumors of his death, the announcement was premature.
            While AI have its usefulness, it won't be competing with Kirschenbaum Contracts™ any time soon.  For those of you who already had the bright idea, and those of you who may still, I asked AI to prepare a burglar alarm contract.  Here is what I got:

            The funny [or sad] thing is that some of you don't use something even as worthless as this.  Those of you who don't think there's anything wrong with this contract .....  you're welcome to use it; no charge.  But I suggest you upgrade to the Standard Form Agreements to protect your company and build equity in your alarm business.
