RAHQOTD

In honor of our new commenter Robert I'm going to attempt a daily quote by Robert A. Heinlein that relates to an issue of the day. This will surely test the limits of my Heinlein reading but I've no doubt dagny will have my back. We'll see how long I can keep it up.

Today, in homage to the WSJs pugilism of one Billy Tauzin (PULL PEDDLER - LA)

Reason is poor propaganda when opposed by the yammering, unceasing lies of shrewd and evil and self-serving men.

-- RAH 'Assignment in Eternity' (1953)

I'll admit right up front: I haven't read it, merely pulled it from Wikiquote.

That's great, thanks! RAH has a lot of quotables. Glenn Reynolds repeated the "bad luck" one about 10 times recently.

Sad but true: I had never even heard of Robert Heinlein until, aged 38 years, I met my wife and soul mate dagny. Been trying to make up lost time ever since...
