By the way, Leslyn wrote a letter to Forry at this same time, in which she discusses her and RAH's belief in an existence after death, and the persistence of connection with the living. I've got it in the box in the garage. This would have been 44, iirc, and shows how 'together' Leslyn still was.

In email I said something about the subject of fandom and this letter I thought worth copying here:

But the hardcore "fans" -- the ones with too much time on their hands, anyway -- are going to be quick to take offense no matter how reasonable it was. Heinlein never understood fiawol, and that's that. To a fiawol mentality, it doesn't matter that fanac may be trivial in the cosmic scheme of things: it's necessary, and that's that. Heinlein's remakrs rise out of a fijagdh mentality.


Wanna explain those acronyms for us retarded types?

FIAWOL: Fandom Is A Way Of Life
FANAC: Fan(dom) Activity
FIJAGDH: Fandom Is Just A G--D--- Hobby

A tour of the Ackermansion.

Before Huell Howser became a California icon, he worked at he NBC affiliate in Nashville TN (from which also sprang Pat Sajak and John Tesh). I used to see him around town doing more or less the same thing he did in California. And he was exactly the same off-camera -- super nice, and genuinely interested in whoever he was talking to.

(and yes, this could have been a new thread -- but this old one seemed worth reviving).

Ah yes. I had a tour in 1984, during which I spied a typewriter containing a letter in progress to one Robert A. Heinlein. I quickly memorized the address for my subsequent fan letter.
