The Legend That Was Earth by James P. Hogan

The Reading Group organizer wasn’t able to attend this meeting since he had to be out of town on a business trip. When he got back to Austin and asked how the discussion went, he found that several people had attended the meeting at Jeff and Judy’s house but none of them remembered it. One person took notes but couldn’t recall why she wrote what she did. Just so there is some record of this meeting, those notes are reproduced in their entirety below:

   TB, WS, JH, JS, SK, SC, LW, KB
   Thrice Upon a Time
   Aliens seemed more likable than humans
   liked aliens a lot more
   problems with the science
   ex-wife was OK
   too much running around & blowing things up
   Italics stuff was kind of boring
   How could centralized news work
   engineers – dull gray

There was some stuff at the bottom of the page about 4 1/2 oz of instant pudding and 4 eggs, but I don’t think that pertained to the discussion.
