Thought for the day

I found this quote by Robert Heinlein so intriguing I'm stealing borrowing it from Jonah Goldberg and an anonymous correspondent over at The Corner:

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects.

Well . . . I can change a diaper.

Great quotation.

I can change a diaper and balance accounts. And I sailed a boat in the Keys once, does that count? Looks like there's a few things I should investigate...


I wonder if Heinlein does his own income taxes.

Dan Gill

Not anymore, he doesn't do his own taxes.

Gina Dalfonzo

Yes, I'm afraid Mr. Heinlein has left the building.

Joe Dalfonzo

how 'bout remove your own appendix??

Gina Dalfonzo

Under your seat you will find a bottle of Scotch . . .

(Family joke. Don't mind us.)
