RAHQOTD

Had some ideas for news related quotes today but was instead captivated by this one. It relates, in my mind at least, to the brief Yukon/Alaskan frontier banter in this comment thread, for in many ways, at least in the 19th century, there was much in common between Alaska and Luna City.

Women are scarce; aren't enough to go around that makes them most valuable thing in Luna, more precious than ice or air, as men without women don't care whether they stay alive or not.

-- RAH, 'The Moon is a Harsh Mistress' (1966)
