  1. Considering that Rush Limbaugh has a bust in that hall … I’m not sure if RAH would even *want* to be there … but .. I’ve donated and encourage others to do so as well.

  2. Michael Walsh: I’ll let you handle the altruistic reasons — my fannish reason for wanting Heinlein’s bust in the state capitol is “We win!” I suppose that’s because I didn’t grow up in a world where sf is mainstream, and living in one now hasn’t quite completely healed the experience…. 😉

  3. A Heinlein Society leader on FB says they collected $1,500 before the matching funds offer began.
