Which Heinlein book?
I don't remember, but one of his characters talked about how the US might engage in war with Xerox. Pointed out that Xerox was a P.O. box, and a widely spread collection of resources, while the US was a big, fat stationary target. Might have used the phrase 'how do you slice a fog?'

I couldn't find it, but instead found this...
I note one proposal to make this Congress a two-house body. Excellent — the more impediments to legislation the better. But, instead of following tradition, I suggest one house of legislators, another whose single duty is to repeal laws. Let the legislators pass laws only with a two-thirds majority... while the repealers are able to cancel any law through a mere one-third minority. Preposterous? Think about it. If a bill is so poor that it cannot command two-thirds of your consents, is it not likely that it would make a poor law? And if a law is disliked by as many as one-third is it not likely that you would be better off without it?

I sense a dislike of laws. How novel. At least in the 40s.

Is a Jesus meme off-topic in the Evil Amazon thread?

Thousands of UK Amazon workers given false Covid test results
Exclusive: officials say the employees tested negatively but were sent notifications telling them to self-isolate

Thousands of Amazon workers received the wrong Coronavirus test results after a mistake meant they were given inaccurate information by test and trace.

The Guardian understands that 3,853 staff members at the online retailer received an erroneous result. Officials said they had tested negatively but received notifications to say they had tested positive and asking them to self-isolate.

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said it had been resolved in a day but those working for the “world-beating” service that tracks down those who may have been infected with the virus said they were still dealing with the fallout.

One test-and-trace worker said: “The tests, as far I can tell were good, but what people were told about their results is wrong.”

The test-and-trace programme has been criticised since its launch. The government’s £22bn programme came under increasing strain during the height of the pandemic as it had to contact nearly triple the number of infected people.

Amazon has quite the advantage over other stores with the shipping. They employ people with trucks in every city over a certain population. I got the jacket from Lands End. The exact same brand name and identical color at Amazon had the same price. But free shipping. I paid 9 dollars.
I don't know, but I made an order 10 days ago, they sent it in 2 packages.

Kudos for the first. it arrived the day after it was sent, and the delivery guy even went up to my flat to give it to me in hand. That was a surprise, and a good one

The second one, not so good. While it did arrive within prescribed parameters, it took far longer than expected, and the carrier did not take it to me but gave it to the concierge, who did not give it to me but waited for me to get the mail that it had been delivered and come down to ask for it. To boot, I discovered that one book had gotten crumpled pages.

Amazon are OK. Sometimes there's a dented box but nothing of value damaged. I write things that I'm gonna buy (maybe gonna buy) in a note book since I noticed they use any info typed into their own system to increase prices by ten or so percent. Enough to make a profit not so much to get noticed increasing the margins. I'd do the same I guess, fairplay to them for taking suckers for a ride.

They allow me to find, and sometimes get, books I would have a horrible time getting any other way, just for that, they deserve my custom.

I buy more than half my used books from Amazon sellers.

Classical Music Superstore sells direct, but I never find anything in their catalog. Then I go to Amazon and they are listed as seller there. Shipping cost the same.

Amazon profiting hugely during the current crisis would be called something, if the crisis had been a war, instead of a pandemic.
