Got all that? Yeah, me neither. But youse guys is a wise bunch, so it's worth a shot.
People are absolutely crazy. Absolutely out of their gourds.
Dude just called up wanting to talk to me about Library of Congress and ISBN information for some book that he's publishing with some Yale outfiit that's not affiliated with us. He said, "Yes, I'm friends with . . . someone you work with . . . Nancy something. Oh yeah, Nancy M. I'm friends with her and some lawyer you got--oh Jesus, what the hell's her name . . ." Um, Linda K.? "Yeah, that's her. We're friends." Then he went into this explanation of the book. I told him, well, the best information I can give you is the URL of the LOC's Web site, which has all the info you need. He was like, "Great! Now when can I come over and meet with you about this? Is tomorrow OK? Hey, Debra, I've got Chris Heller on the phone about this ISBN stuff, when's good for you?" DUDE. I ain't tryin' to have a meeting with your rude ass. Now write this URL down and get the hell off the phone, crackhead.
