  1. When you going to do Los Angeles?
    PS. Booksoup is NOT LA, its West Hollywood.
    LA is Hollywood, where I live.

  2. Two important things you do not mention:

    1. Will you meet up with Penn & Teller?
    If so, Pro “Gator” Libertate wants you to ask if Penn ever comments at H&R.

    2. Are you bringing the Roadshow to Chicago?
    We are sick & tired of that other damn roadshow. You know, the one with the freaky twins.

  3. You can’t be cool without reading Brian’s volume.

    And what about taking the tour to Denver? Denver has the 2nd highest per-capita book consumption in the US-2nd only to San Francisco.

  4. Rick Barton,

    YOUR PUNISHMENT FOR YOUR PRIDE OF READERSHIP IS TO WRITE A TWELVE WORD ESSAY ON GWB’S HUBRIS.
    HAIKU FORM WILL PLEASE Urkobold.

    Brian Doherty,

    YOU HAVE NOT ANSWERED highnumber’S QUESTIONS.
    YOUR PUNISHMENT IS TO GO TO DENVER TO HANG OUT WITH THOSE NERDS.

  5. Good thing you were in a DC building that did not burn down yesterday.

  6. Urkobold,

    Ok, as you wish. I’m as happy to expatiate on the hubris of GWB as the next libertarian, in whatever form. I’ll have it done in no more than 24 hrs. I’d do it now cept I wanna crash cuz I’m kinda tired.

  7. Next, invade Greenland.
    They should be easy to beat.
    Mission accomplished.

    highnumber,

    I’ve rethought my plan to “out” Penn, if he actually does post here. If he were revealed, he’d be driven away by requests for free shows, juggling lessons, and free monkeys. I don’t want anything to distract him from his destiny–to become President of the United States of America.

  8. We are sick & tired of that other damn roadshow. You know, the one with the freaky twins.

    We’re not that freaky…

    We’re not that freaky
    GWB Hubris
    is much more freaky

    Don’t invade Gr?nland
    more profits are to be made
    at liquor store there

    it was highnumber
    who left the cake out in the rain
    recipe no more

  9. 10 HOURS TO GO, Rick Barton.
    I EXPECT THE ESSAY WILL BE ON MY DESK.

  10. Chicago. Myopic Books. Pretty please.

  11. What of Florida? We’re always overlooked by libertarian types.

  12. Hey, R. Totale!

    Screw you!
    Barbara’s – Downtown Oak Park. It’s bigger. If it’s good enough for David Sedaris…

    Chicagoan, eh?
    How’s the lake today?
    VikingMoose and Mr Steven Crane keep telling me it’s beautiful. Is it true? I haven’t seen it for a while.

  13. The lake, thank you very much, is beautiful. It always is.

    ProGLib – Terry Schiavo. Darum. und damit basta. 🙂

  14. I’m waiting for Doherty’s next book to come out. It examines the spread of STD’s during the Summer of Love called This Is Burning, Man!

  15. “You know, the one with the freaky twins.”

    Yeah, who are those guys? Why does it take two of them to look at a chair? Jon Hapton

  16. VM,

    What’s your point? Florida let her die, remember?

  17. ProGLib,

    He had a crush on her.

  18. Didn’t the gov and others in the state lobby to keep her on life support machines?

    anyhoo, you’re right – and I couldn’t think of a way to parlay that into a humorous comment. Am in a rather sour mood this afternoon.

    (and decided not to make the totally inappropriate, tasteless joke that “oh, I just thought people from FLA looked like that”)

    One of my best friends lives in Tampa, now (he’s the one who gave me the Noam Chomsky blow up doll when he moved there), and he loves it!

    cheerio!

  19. (d’oh)

    Well [blushes], High# is right. She was the only one who never told me to sod off. And she was such a good listener. She let me tell her all about my action figures.

    Incred-o-man
    Waterbug Man
    Synthesizer Girl
    Happy-Snake-Charmer Man
    CTA Avenger
    Copier Ink Man
    Ze-li-ba-rhin-elephant (zebra, lion, baboon, rhino, elephant)
    Jalapeno Girl
    K-Car Toxic Unleaded Man

    and I showed her all of my homemade trading cards

  20. VM,

    I love Tampa, too. I went to some trouble to return here after my Midwestern Exile (c. 1991 – 1999), during which I learned a greater appreciation for this fair town. I’d probably be making a lot more money if I’d been willing to relocate, but the heck with it. Here I am, and here I remain!

  21. Jalape?o Girl is hot.

    (sometimes. sometimes she’s milder than you’d hope.)

  22. Ummm, Vegas Drive and Lake Mead Blvd. are parallel at that point. I believe you meant to write, “corner of Rainbow Blvd. and Vegas Drive.” I used to go there for the Villa Pizza and others for Roberto’s Taco Shop, both of which are (were? it’s been a while) in the same building.

  23. Well, I’ve never been there, so I’m only repeating the instructions I was given, which said “Lake Mead Blvd. & Vegas Drive” (Opposite the Las Vegas Mini Grand Prix). I guess a local would now. Or you can just go by the street address.

  24. Brian, you can carry heat if you have a CCW permit. Any non-felon could get one. You don’t have live in Nevada. Look into it. Its fun to legal pack heat and in Vegas, you’ll never know when you’ll need it. I mean there is probably a much better then chance you’ll need it then the national average for that location, demographics, time of day etc.

  25. YEAH, DOHERTY, JOIN THE LIBERTARIAN MILITIA. BIG MAN. SHOOT GUNS. WHO’S WITH ME? (besides Terry)

    All apologies to LarryA and mediageek.

  26. I completely forgot to ask about the Sawdust Caesars…

  27. Urkobold:

    10 HOURS TO GO, Rick Barton.
    I EXPECT THE ESSAY WILL BE ON MY DESK.

    Did I say 24 hrs? I meant 48…yeah that’s the ticket. Ok ok ya got me. The real reason that I haven’t composed the 12-word essay on GWB’s hubris written in HAIKU style is that I can’t…That is, I can’t do HAIKU. I can’t do HAIKU cuz I’M AN ANDROID! There, I SAID IT. I’M AN ANDROID!! I’M AN ANDROID AND I’VE COMMENTED HERE FOR YEARS!! Please don’t hold it against me, anyone. It would hurt. I’VE BEEN ENGINERRED FOR EMOTIONS EVERY BIT AS REAL AS YOURS!! JUST LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR LOOK INTO OUR

  28. That was probably far more entertaining than the haiku would have been. You get a pass.

  29. Thanks, Urkobold
