Ed did anybody else think of Stranger in a Strange Land, when they saw Charlie Wilson's War? I could have sworn that Charlie Wilson based his entire life on the Jubal Harshaw character from Stranger in a Strange Land. They both had 3 hot secretaries, who they treated similarly... they were both skeptical and impatient of the way government tended to work; they were both freethinkers (at least, for the times... in todays world, they would both give me a migraine).

Ronald LOL. Nice catch. Yeah, you're right about that actually... interesting.

Pax Rolfe I did not, but I'll watch it again and see what I think. Anything Aaron Sorkin deserves a second viewing.

Rick Sammons Great now I have to watch Charlie Wilson's War.

Daniel I always find it's hard to read Stranger without making the connection between Jubal and Hunter S Thompson as well.

Rapidio Charlie Wilson's War is One of my favorite movies. Phillip Seymour Hoffman was great, as always
