Brilliant blog and on FaceBook!

Check out this NY Times online series dealing with what lead up to the Civil War 150 years ago.  It's fantastic!

And it's scary just how similar the events from then are to the events of today.

Check this out, too --

Went in to work for a while, today, to try and get a jump on next week's chaos.  That's when over 100 book dealers from the US, Canada and Europe are being picked up to be taken to the California Book Fair in San Francisco.  And way too many of the Euro-boiz have yet to hand in the paperwork needed to get them through customs or have errors on the paperwork they HAVE handed in that needs correcting before it can be submitted.  You'd think book dealers, who live in a world of intelligence and literacy, would be able to read the friggin' instructions they were given, but nooooooooooo...

I have a feeling this will not be a fun week.  So I hereby make a pledge to keep the crap at work AT work and not populate this blog with my angst.

Now it's turkey dinner time...and writing, writing, writing.  Or should I say, RE-writing?
