The Future is Now

The Wall Street Journal has chosen to turn its attention to the legacy of Heinlein:

Robert A. Heinlein, who died in 1988, lived a life inspired by two great loves. One was America and its promise of freedom. As one of his characters put it: "Your country has a system free enough to let heroes work at their trade. It should last a long time — unless its looseness is destroyed from the inside." And he loved and admired women — not just his wife, Virginia, who provided the model for the many strong-minded and highly competent females who populate his stories, but all of womankind. "Some people disparage the female form divine, sex is too good for them; they should have been oysters."

Layers upon layers of meaning… (Thanks, Shana!)
