Do any of you feel that Valentine Michael Smith had far more effect on your political leanings than whoever?

this Saul Alinsky did? I never heard of Alinsky before four years ago, but last night Rachel Maddow used the word grokked, and it reminded me how I felt about Stranger in a Strange Land.


That's OK. I can tell that none of you have ever read the book. I assume you are all much younger than myself. People my age know exactly whom I am talking about.

    Can't say either had any influence on me.

    My political leanings are probably driven more by experience than anything else.

    (I don't even remember Smith, and I was a science fiction buff for many years. Now, if you had referenced Douglas Adams or Frank Herbert's books, I might have remembered. :o))
