Keep your anti-Rolling Stones rants to yourself  ;)

I thought the emoticon of semicolon and close parenthesis indicated a jest,=
 not a rant.

I'm still so new to this digital world.

And for the curious the four books I list as alternatives...

DECISION POINTS, by George W. Bush
UNBROKEN, by Laura Hillenbrand
LIFE, by Keith Richards with James Fox

...are currently ahead of our favorite autobiographer on the New York Times=
 list. Come on, people! 19 bucks on Amazon gets you, what Adam Gopnik of th=
e New Yorker recently described as, "a reshuffling of the same deck of dict=
ated and written fragments and pieces published in the last decades of Twai=
n's life (slightly altered here by Twain's revising hand and ostensibly in =
his intended order)."

;)    [indicating jest]

Seriously, for 19 bucks everyone I know is getting this as their Christmas =
present. Forget JZ, GWB, and whoever that Keith Richards guy is.
