    Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

      Seems, TF, that you and me are in a bit of minority...

          Went for the Cornell. Been too long since I read FotP.
          You see, it's... it's no good, Montag. We've all got to be alike. The only way to be happy is for everyone to be made equal.

              While RI is a lesser son of the mighty CA, it still wins my vote in the pair-off.

                I'll abstain from this poll, since I don't remember too much about TRI (although I didn't much enjoy Printer's Devil on which it was based) and I don't remember the details of TFotP (even assuming I finished reading it when it was first published), so it seems unfair to vote at this time.

                _For another eternity Allard swam through seas without end, all green and cool and deep, where distorted creatures drifted, sometimes attacking him.
                _And then, at last, he had reached the real world – the world he had created, where he was God and could create or destroy whatever he wished.
                _He was supremely powerful. He told planets to destroy themselves, and they did. He created suns. Beautiful women flocked to be his. Of all men, he was the mightiest. Of all gods, he was the greatest."
