See? Now I find all this facinating. I went to a backwoods, home-grown religious school in the 80's in the middle of the Southern Bible Belt (Mississippi, ya'll). Oh, and by 'backwoods', I mean the building was put in a corner of the local farmer's soybean field. Really. We'd watch him drive by the window on his John Deere in Bible/History class (the Bible *was* our history book). You can't make up stuff like that. So I'd think we'd have been the first-in-line, git'em-hot-off-the-presses demographic for this sort of thing. But I've never *heard* of these tracts. Amazing. Now, I do remember a fire-and-brimstone pastor coming to an Assembly and lecturing us on the 'Evils of Rock-n-Roll Music'. My favorite quote was the one about how "...the anapestic beat [two short beats, a long beat, then a pause] used by many rock musicians actually is the exact opposite of our heart and arterial rhythms [thereby causing an immediate loss of body strength]." But the 'Evils of D&D'? We never got that one. Huh. In fact, my D&D experience much more resembles this article from Fresh Yarn than anything else. http://www.freshyarn.com/1/essays/davis_ninth.htm

Fragile Things is fantastic, but have you *heard* any of his works? The audiobooks I have are all "read by the author". As brilliant an author as he is, he's equally amazing as a voice actor. I don't know if I can just read his books anymore after hearing his delivery. Heck! You should know this! Didn't you have the link to the audio of "A Study in Emerald" up a while back? I think it's still a free download to members at Audible.com. http://www.audible.com/adbl/site/products/ProductDetail.jsp?BV_SessionID=@@@@0886735025.1279811424@@@@&BV_EngineID=cccladekmjefhhfcefecekjdffidfjf.0&productID=BK_HARP_001528 Try it! You'll like it!

Dude! You *must* update your tagline! Obviously, it should read: "Wil Wheaton says "Don't be a Dick!", but that doesn't mean Wil Wheaton doesn't love you." Whadda ya think? Yes?
