By Robert Heinlein

Chapter 17

  • Stu has their illegal recording cut, slanted in their favor, and sent to news outlets.
  • During the next meeting, the Chairman reminds Prof that the sessions are closed. Prof retorts they are the only ones who said it was closed.
  • The committee asks about the grain shipments, and Prof responds that they are open to negotiations but that the contracts the Authority had before are null.
  • Prof makes a speech, the gist of which is that if the committee accepts Luna as a free state and negotiates with it as such, grain shipments will increase.
  • That evening, Stu lines Prof and Mannie up for an interview with reporters, placing some of his own men in the bunch to make sure the right questions are asked.
