Submission + - Jerry Pournelle 1933-2017 (

tengu1sd writes: Jerry Pournelle died in his sleep 8 Sep 2017. Fiction and technical reviews may be the reason he's known here. Pournelle was a former Army officer who served in the Korean War, science adviser to Newt Gingrich, an analyst for the DoD touching just a few of his activities. His public appearances showed preparation and thoughtful exchange of ideas. Frequently loud, but well reasoned.
