As for Heinlein, after reading the script for TTWT, he remarked something to effect that they had both lifted ideas from Ellis Parker Butler's story "Pigs Is Pigs" and from the biblical story of Noah.
You mean according to Gerrold, Heinlein said that, which is what he wrote in his book "The Trouble With Tribbles".
Fair enough. I accept your correction to my lack of attribution.
I wasn't really commenting on a lack of attribution, rather that what we have is Gerrold's claim of what Heinlein supposedly said.
