Off again!

Happy early birthday wishes to bouncybabylemur and fungus_files! May you both have fantastic days and wonderful years to come.

Here's one more Heinlein-related article new today: "100 Years of Heinlein" by Scott Van Wynsberghe

I'm off to UCLA to give four lectures as part of the Institute for Humane Studies' Cinematic & Literary Traditions of Liberty: A Workshop. I will be offline until Wednesday morning. I look forward to catching up with everyone soon.

"No, Jubal would not buy the 'just happened' theory, popular as it was with men who called themselves scientists. Random chance was not a sufficient explanation of the Universe---in fact, random chance was not sufficient to explain random chance; the pot could not hold itself."
- Robert Heinlein, Stranger in a Strange Land

I love the quote, such a very good argument, and it would go well with the July epiphany Jef Murray posted on the email list.

Oh wow, it does really work well with Jef Murray's post, doesn't it? I'm so glad you like this passage, too.
