I saw this book a while ago in the Barnes and Noble at Pacific Place. It made me want to cry.

You hadn't heard of this book before? Really? It was published 3 or 4 years ago.

Also, your quasi-hipster dissing of small towns is just lame.

Your name is practically an anagram for Ayn Rand, figured you'd be a big supporter of Bill. So much for anagram political theory.

They aren't, really. My kid was caught replaying "Conservative Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue!" at

Anywhere on the tapes, can Bill O'Reilly be hear shouting "We'll do it LIVE! Fucking thing SUCKS!"

Because I'd get that for my boy.

Thank you Adrian for doing that. I would have done the same.

No kid wants to read a book with a creepy dudes face on the cover. O'rielly has to be somewhat in on the joke - If he'd wanted to subvert our children, it'd be a hell of a lot easier to just write a fictional kids book. Then again, there's his ego..

You've protected some children, but you're too late to save the children at the Universalist church in TN...

Hey! Books on tapes for KIDS? What, are they busy? Busy commuters? Good gawd, it's just another step towards illiteracy. Which is just fine with the FOX news types -- they want people who can be manipulated with the poke of a stick to the reptile brain core.

Unless it's for blind conservative children, of course. That would account for his face on the cover, too. Only the parents would see it.
