Sarah bought that when it first came out, and we've both read it. She's rereading the Jon Stewart one, America: The Book now.

If you like those kinds of books, you should check out Al Franken's books - Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot, and Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them. Both excellent, they make their point, but with a lot of humour and satire - both laugh out loud funny, had me in tears

His books suffer when being adapted for the screen though. They're either so long that they can't possibly be compressed into two hours without being butchered, or else they get made into mini-series, where they suffer from being edited down to fit network standards. His short stories do much better as films.

True, with both this and The Stand.

I'm hesitant: I'm like Stephen Colbert, I don't trust books. Unless they're written by him. Or me.

I can't just yet....I sort of a have a professional mission I am still in the middle of. When that's concluded, it could be my next move prior to shifting careers. We shall see.

I have the Colbert book, and started reading it, but just haven't found the time to finish it. I was on the chapter about sex Maybe I'll have to pick it up again

I have a Franken book, but another one I started reading and never could finish. I'm just not a reader

unico - LMAO!!!

The best part of the Colbert book is his science glossary.

DOL, have you ever watched The Stand. The "special effects" were poor, but, the rest of it was pretty well done....Rob Lowe and Gary Sinise, amongst others, do a good job. Sinise is great, actually.

I'm mad at Stephen Colbert. He stole my damn birthday. I don't care if he's decades older than me, he still stole it And so did that damn mermaid pre-cog in the Electrical Storm video.
