    One thing I was curious about with *For Us, The Living*: I hear tell Heinlein had more of a pro-socialist stance in that book. Apparently he learned better.

      Here's another article on the subject, raising some other interesting
      questions:

      http://www.opinionjournal.com/taste/?id=110006040


      For instance: "As things stand, the spending decisions of publishers (and
      librarians) grant a kind of imprimatur to printed works, legitimizing them
      for the sphere of public discourse. Who will fill this function in the
      future? Should anyone? "

      Everyone should feel free to ignore any kind remarks therein about private
      enterprise.

      Our librarian when I was a child had no political opinions I am aware of,
      but fervently believed in astrology. He and my mother shared a birth-month
      and he was always trying to tout her on a book about the glories of being an
      Aquarian.

      I shall always be glad that the children's section had not "got the word"
      and tossed Baum.
