Just a note:  I love it that Rachel Maddow regularly uses the word “grok” in her show.

Wow.

The woman is 28 years old, and uses – on a nationally aired show with a huge audience – an obscure, made-up term borrowed from a 1961 sci-fi cult classic, a book published when I was merely six, and she was still a dozen years from being born.

Lord love a nerd.
