    Raj, Richard and Nelson, were in an interesting exchange when I arrived. It involved topics I was interested in and both I and the rest of the group enjoyed listening and participating in the discussion. As usual, I recommended people read David Deutsch, but tonight I also recommended Robert Heinlein.

      Thanks, Nelson. I'll take your advice on those books. I haven't read any of them yet.
