Thanks Adrienne! YOU guys rock!!! My goal in life is to work there. If I can just figure out how to leave my family, pack it up, and move across the country. Until then, I will just frequent the website and dream!!

Amen Brockman! I got so excited because I got a personal email from Taylor Branch (well, after I emailed him gushing about his amazing trilogy on MLK and civil rights)...did anyone know or care? I am thrilled to be attending the book tour of Wally Lamb...does anyone know him? He was on Oprah for gosh sakes! It is frustrating living in a DVR world when all you want to do is talk to someone...anyone...about fabulous books!

"The only thing that concerns me about a Barack Obama presidency is the dearth of really hilarious political impressions for the next eight years." Now that really would be "change"! We may have to start a grassroots campaign to "save our comedians" if Obama wins.
