    that Niven probably agrees with O'Lielly.  :(

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

      Pournelle probly, but Niven isn't nuts....and they haven't collaborated in years....

        made their millions from the Teapot Dome scandal.  He is, in many ways, to the right of Jerry.

        I can't tell you how disappointed I was the first time I met him, at the RW BS he was spouting.  :(

          ....that the Known Space set of stories has expanded far beyond Niven with a number of other writers expanding the story off in all directions.

          I have heard that he's a RWNJ, but I haven't seen much sign of it in the stories, and I like what he said about collaboration, that he knew about certain things, but he hadda get other people with different experiences and knowledge to write about things he didn't have experience and knowledge with--and he's been open minded enough to allow different personalities to play in his sandbox.

          Check out Paul Chafe.  He's written about the Kzin a great deal, both short stories for the Man-Kzin Wars anthologies, and a free-standing full length novel set entirely on Kzinhome, about conflict among the Kzin themselves.

          None of Niven's stories are Randian screeds by any means, so I can deal with him just fine, just so long as he doesn't run for Congress in my district.

            very low actual personal intelligence, very powerful mind control abilities....

            Perfect Storm of Bad Shit...Stupid as a stump and charismatic as hell (to certain vulnerable types!)

            Plus his shit comes out of his mouth!
