I started reading this book the day after this post & in the context of the current political situation. Quite fascinating & prescient . It is fun to read Heinlein.  In the 60’s Stranger in a Strange Land seemed to be a bible of the emotions of the flower children of that time.  The word grok was introduced into a few vocabularies.  So far I wonder if there will be anything fun to read in the blogs & postings here & elsewhere in the quick & somewhat transient electronic media of the Internet. The new media is heavily laden with twitterings of selfie-flower-children.
