Quote of the Day

From Sean Corfield's .sig: 

"Progress isn't made by early risers. It's made by lazy men trying
to find easier ways to do something."
– Robert Heinlein

Amen to that.

    Heinlein was a genius; read any of his books?

    I haven't. I'll add it to my list of things to do, but man does having kids put a cramp on leisure reading time. ;) Not that I'm complaining, of course.

    Ah, yeah, I imagine, but that has to be something I can't fully comprehend until I'm there.

    "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" is my fav – sort of all about libertarianism set to the story of the Moon as a penal colony that revolts.

    "Stranger in a Strange Land" is probably his best known one.

    I'd read the Amazon reviews of others before picking one up at random…a few aren't the best.

    Stranger In A Strange Land was probably Heinlein's best, followed closely by Moon is A Harsh Mistress. Time Enough For Love seems to be either really liked or really disliked, depending on your perspective. You may also want to read Starship Troopers, which was much better than the movie.
