"I was worried about [Elon Musk], because he's one of our great geniuses, and we have to protect our geniuses. You know, we have to protect Thomas Edison, and we have to protect all of these people that came up with, originally, the lightbulb, and the wheel, and all of these things...He's also doing the rockets.

-- Sen. Lindsey Graham, January 1999
