#1 3,630 Copies???? Oh, man, that's almost sad enough to make me feel pity for these poor, sick bastards.

Almost.

#2 Probably the American Library Association directed buy for your local libraries. Not that you'd find too many non-lefty writers with books far higher on the best selling lists among recent orders.

#3 Just remember they are poised to take over the House and Senate in November! Sure they are.

#4 Don't forget the lack of respect for copyright among likely KOS readers. There could be thousands more copies circulating that were xeroxed on university machines, paid for with government grant money.

#5 Among all listeners 12+, it was a race to the bottom for AIR AMERICA and WLIB as mid-days went from a 1.6 share during winter 2005 to a 1.0 share winter 2006.

Does this mean they were polling all radio listeneners that are aged 12+, or does it mean there was only "12+" listeners total? Either way, it makes me LMAO.

#6 3,630 Copies???? Oh, man, that's almost sad enough to make me feel pity for these poor, sick bastards.

Yes, I pity the 3360 people who bought it.

#9 What's that title of that Kos book again? Crash & Burn? Crashing Bore? Crushing Disappointment?

#11 A slight related commentary, I often peruse the used books section of our local public library, that's where they sell off the books that are either too old, unread, or otherwise destined to be trashed unless someone wants them.

These books usualy sell for a pittance, usualy a buck or less.

On this visit there were a total of twenty copies of Bill Clinton's autobiography "My Life" all unused, brand new, and unopened since bought, all for a dollar each, no takers.

#12 Jim: Recommend you return to the library tomorrow and correct your oversight. You have a moral obligation to children and mankind in general, to purchase these books and feed them into a shredder immediately. We can never be quite certain that some innocent soul might come along, pict one up and mistake it's content for truth.

#13 More new reasons for the Clinton-led Dems to demand American Hiroshimas. THePresidencne is the Presidency, Power is Power, whether it comes from surviving GOP-Conservative-Rightism caused/blamed new 9-11's, i.e. MUNICH BEER HALL PUTCHS; to saving the world and SSSSHHHHHHHH, mainstream SOCIALIST America from GOP-Conservative-Rightism caused/blamed Nuke Brinkmanship and Nuke Warfare. Whom wants to be Hermann Goering and get shot in the groin in the name of national Potemkinism. ROBIN WILLIAMS > "CCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCC

#14 C'mon, do you really expect a blockbuster for Kos when you get reviewers like Melody X, the self-proclaimed "star of the DVD 'the New Sex' and the e-book 9 Free Secrets...", titling her review on Amazon with the curious title, "Uninteresting yet Genius"?

YJCMTSU....check it out on Amazon if you don't believe me. Apparently she IS quite the expert on sex, since her latest review is for the book "What to Expect When You're Expecting". ;)
