I'm taking a quick break from answering your tough comments, readers, in order to take care of some housecleaning:
If you go to amazon.com right now, you can buy my book, "The Short Book" AND "The Daring Book for Girls" by Andrea J. Buchanan for only $24.92! That is a savings of $1.00!

Quick Movie Review: "The Savages" stars P. S. Hoffman and Laura Linney. The first half hour is great. The last half hour is one half hour too many. The half hours in between are mixed. A small observation: it is not hard to make people seem like they have sad lives if you just show them staring at a bleek landscape and score it with sad music. A tour de force.
