4/21    _The Rape of Nanking_ is an excellent book.
        \_ Where can I get it?  Library?...
                \_ any decent bookstore should have it.
        \_ Which one?
           "The Rape of Nanking: The Forgotten Holocaust of World War II" or
                \_ this one, by Iris Chang, they were showcasing on Sproul.
                   I know for sure that it is good.
           "The Rape of Nanking: An Undeniable History in Photographs" ?

4/23    Is there some competition between Tom Clancy and Robert Jordan to
        see who can produce the longest books? 800-1000pgs per novel. Ack.
        \_What did Robert Jordan write?
          \_ The Wheel Of Time series, which hardbacks combined weigh more
             than I do.
        \_ Its all crap anyway, who cares?  Go buy the Xanth series in
           hardback if you want to read by weight instead of quality.
           \_ Go and get some Ayn Rand instead.  Utter drivel like
              Piers Anthony, but some people think it's "deep."
                \-It is shakespeare's bday today. Go read Merchant of Venice
                or Henry V. --psb
                \_ I found a new deeper meaning to life in the Xanth books.:-)
        \_ Try "Don Quixote."

4/23    David Letterman's top ten on Bill Gates:
        \_ Yawn.  Saw it live.  Letterman needs a new act.
        \_ Boring...
