YIAAL writes "In this television interview, Hugo award winner John Scalzi, author of Old Man's War and Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded, talks about the state of science fiction, why Robert Heinlein's teenage protagonists are better than J.D. Salinger's, and the importance of apocalyptic fiction in encouraging people to retain some actual skills. Plus, Star Trek design critique. Money quote: "All Holden Caulfield did was bitch, bitch, bitch. Put him behind the controls of a starship and he'd implode from stress.""
