    i just finished reading the five people you meet in heaven.
    It is by the same author who wrote Tuesday's with Maurie. Both really good. Everyone should read them.

    I'm still on Song of Sussanah right now, a little more then half way through, and then I will be on to book VII.

    Villa Incognito by Tom Robbins.

    He is by far the funniest author I've ever read. He is so smart and yet so crazy.

    Excerpts from this book ..

    "It has been reported that Tanuki fell from the sky using his scrotum as a parachute.
    That is not so ridiculous when we take into account the unusual size of Tanuki's scrotum.
    Well, okay, it's still pretty ridiculous?and no less so just because in relation to his overall body mass, Tanuki's scrotum is proportionately larger than the scrota of elephants, whales, and the Jolly Green Giant. In those days, his testicular balloon bag may actually have been even more voluminous than it is today, though that's difficult to imagine since his balls very nearly drag the ground as it is, and any increase in volume would surely have been an impediment to mobility if, indeed, not a source of some pain. There is also the possibility that Tanuki had (and perhaps still has) the power to increase or decrease scrotum size at will.
    Yet, having said all that, we must concede that the role of anatomical size per se in Tanuki's descent is not easy to determine, and a more pertinent question might be not how the badger managed to use his significant seed sack to parachute to earth but, rather: Where did he parachute from? And why?"

    "in the end, perhaps we should simply imagine a joke; a in joke that?s being continually retold in an accent too thick and too strange to ever be completly understood. life is that joke, my friends. the soul is its punch line."

    "When socialism is pushed beyond a certain point, it becomes totalitarianism. Capitalism, on the other hand, if carried to its extreme, becomes anarchy."

    Nice one there remy. I'd read a number of his books before, but had randomly picked up this book while at the airport before a long flight and vacation. I finally ended up reading it a few months later and I found it one of his best books. Very funny, as most of his are, with a bit of a strong serious point this time. Loved it!

    But I would suggest that if you want smart and funny, there really is none better than Vonnegut.

    Just finished "All the President's Spin," which discusses how the Bush administration has perfected the fine art of political spin. Interesting read, if you're a fan of politics.
