Happy birthday, Bob. Pass along my greetings to the Revs. Foster and Digby, and of course, Mike and Jubal.

Heinlein 101? Hasn't that been done?
:P

You can never do enough; besides, there's no convention this year so what else is there to do? ;)

Heartily agreed on the first point, which is the, um, point of my comment.

Some, it seems, can't do much of anything else. Some of us think it's maybe time to move on to the graduate seminars instead of wasting resources treading the same introductory ground (and on the nickels of the good-hearted, no less).

I hope the experts and aficionados will continue to provide a full spectrum of paying-forward, from reaching potential Heinlein casual readers all the way up to Heinlein scholars. Heinlein's penetration into the general population has reached a level I only could dream of as a teenager; similarly with the scholarly studies. But there's still a lot of ignorance, error, and misrepresentation out there. I don't mean that everyone needs to work along the whole spectrum, but that it's all worthwhile.

Thanks for the reminder about paying-foward. I personally owe RAH so much. I can't give it back. Even little things, such as leaving his paperbacks in college cafeterias, help spread the awareness and the blessing. Give the juveniles to every kid you have an excuse to buy birthday presents for. Get them started young....

Yes, Sharon, I really need _Rolling Stones_ to be back in print so I can send it to my goddaughter. She is only about 7, but I've been told she could tackle a Heinlein juvenile already.

I filled out my set of juvenile hardbacks using Amazon's used books listings, and got great prices on copies in good shape. Hope to buy the new edition someday but meantime am able to get the kids in the loop.
