Went to the used book store yesterday and stocked up on more Heinlein. I started reading his anthology "Expanded Universe" which includes note from the author. I loved this quote from Blowups Happen when a scientist is talking to the board of directors. To get a little current and political it is something that needs to be said to our politicians more and more these days:

"As to it being a difference of opinion - you are none of you atomic physicists; you are not entitled to hold opinions in this matter."

Love it! And a fascinating story from 1940 on nuclear power (and solar power too).
