Post Echoes of history
There is something vertiginous about looking at a satellite image... of three U-2s on the hardstand at Beale AFB, just a few dozen miles from me. Such a different world from 1960, when the planes and their mission were the blackest of national security secrets... and now I can practically read their tail numbers, for free, from the comfort of my office chair, which could be located anywhere in the wired world.

So weird.

In the end, I found Heinlein is finite. Thus, finite analysis is needed.
