Heinlein Month: The real problem


Photograph by John Filo. Mary Vecchio crying over the body of a fellow student slain by National Guardsmen. May 4, 1970. Kent State, Ohio, USA.

“You’re bitching about friendly fornication — do you know what I’m worried about?”

“What?”

“Christ was crucified for preaching without a police permit. Sweat over that, instead.”

(Jubal to Mike. Stranger In A Strange Land.)

    Mary Vecchio was not a “fellow student”; at least not a fellow Kent State Student. She was a 14 year old runaway from Florida who had last attended shool at a junior high school.
