Loony Toons

My first thought after reading this headline? Finally! Bush is taking a stand. How many times should innocent kids have to watch Elmer Fudd shoot Bugs Bunny or Wile E. Coyote fall off a cliff before someone intervenes? Those jerks at Warner Bros. have been corrupting our children for far too long.

But apparently it's a lot worse than all of that.

CNN: Bush urges end to cartoon violence.

Dear Doug:
Congratulations on the publication of your book in Australia! I wish you much success on sales of the book and hope perhaps that it'll even get translated into other languages, though maybe some of your best humor might get lost in translation ("air guitar" in Swahili?). I just wanted to let you know that your sense of humor was my favorite thing about reading your work. Having worked part-time during evenings & weekends for several years as a bridal registry consultant at a major midwest department store (in addition to my regular job as an academic librarian), humor -- as you well know -- is sometimes the only way of keeping one's sanity during the madness of wedding planning. I could see your book quickly getting dog-eared in the hip pocket of the jeans of many potential grooms. All the best to you and your bride. Cordially, "Madame"
