July the 7th is Robert Heinlein is 100th birthday.

I have to confess I have not read as much as I should of him.

His book "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress" gave TNSTAAFL. There's no such thing as a free lunch. His screenplay for the movie "Destination Moon" inspired thousand of people who participated in Apollo.

He was also an American patriot. Its not a bad record and should be honored.

Read some of his books instead of watching Al Gore's concerts.

RAH is one of my favorite people. He was the personification of Good Sense and added several useful memes to our stock.

TANSTAAFL

If N.J. allowed 9 characters on the license plates, I would opt for that one.

TMIAHM occupies an honored position on my bookshelf and I re-read it often. It sets right next to -The Dispossessed- by Ursula Laguin who did for anarchism, what Ayn Rand did for capitalism. And she is a better writer than Ayn Rand.

Of course -Atlas Shrugged- also has an honored position on my shelves.
