Heinlein Quote of the Month (May 2007)

"Am not going to argue whether a machine can 'really' be alive, 'really' be self-aware. Is a virus self-aware? Nyet. How about oyster? I doubt it. A cat? Almost certainly. A human? Don't know about you, tovarishch, but I am."

- Manny Garcia O'Kelly in The Moon Is a Harsh Mistress.
