I'm giving you 4 points.

Just because you're cute. And you said " Grok ".

Just Me,

I have to admit I cheated a bit, using someone's earlier post. :P
Often he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been rent asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him...and he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.

Just Me,
So, Tim, what can you tell us about him?

What were your impressions? Did he seem like a good guy, a poopy head, what? I know a book signing isn't the most conducive environment for getting to now someone, but I'd be interested to know what you think.

Also, thanks for the bonus points I embrace them and let them go. grok

As an avid reader, I positively DEVOUR Heinlein. Poly aside, he just spins a damn good yarn. Re-read his books often to fully grok them - he's one of those "gain a littel more from it each time you read it" authors. Herbert, Card, Stephenson - even Clancy. All my favorites are like that.

PS - "grok" is in the dictionary. I actually used it in a Scrabble tourney once and got challenged - and won, lol. Laughed my butt off the first time I found it in the abridged.

Yes, we are Heinlein fans as well. We've read almost everything of his, and read them together.

I actually had a pin that said, "I grok Spock".
