Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Signs of the Upside Down World

An now for something completely different:

Did you all hear that Bin Laden, just like Oprah, recommended a book in his speech and it jumped from 209,000 on's sales list before to No. 30 on the list? See Yahoo News

William Blum's "Rogue State: A Guide to the World's Only Superpower" was the recommendation. I think he will soon make a guest appearance on Oprah.

Other Bin Laden Suggestions: "Animal Farm", "Secret of Nimh", "Catcher in the Rye", Fahrenheit 451, and of course, Mark Twain's "Innocents Abroad", Atlas Shrugged," "Brave New World," "Stranger in a Strange Land," "I'm OK, You... Not So Much," "Live and Let Die","Planet of the Apes" and "Brain Droppings".

Of course, I am joking about the other suggestions.

Having your political treatise endorsed by Osama bin Laden is like having your genetics paper endorsed by Josef Mengele. If I were Blum, I would run away from that endorsement as fast as possible.

Thanks for the tip, USWest. Actually, come to think of it USWest, I'm amazed anyone listened to the details of the tape enough to get the book. I'll bet the NSA will keep a list of those who order the book or check it out from the library, eh? Sheesh.

"If you're part of bin Laden's book club, we want to know about it..."
