*A Brief Publisher's Message*
Tomorrow, November 9, 2010, we are officially releasing former president George W. Bush's new book, /Decision Points/, and we would
like to make the following request:
> Please do not take copies off the shelf, open them to a random
page, insert a quantity of spit, nasal discharge or chewing gum,
slam them shut and put them back on the shelf.
> Please do not draw horns on Mr. Bush's head---be they a ram's, a
goat's or Satan's. Please also no forked tails or thought-bubbles
that say "Heckuva Job."
> Please do not throw the book to the ground and stomp on it while
yelling, "You suck!"
> Please do not knock over the bookcase on which /Decision Points/
is displayed, as this could result in a domino effect on the other
bookcases and cause damage and/or injury to other customers.
> Please do not attempt to move copies of the book from the
Non-fiction section of the store to the Humor or Fantasy sections.
> Please do not whip out a Sharpie and add "Awesome book---if
properly shredded" to the list of testimonial blurbs on the back cover.
We know you're upset at how badly he screwed you over, but please:
let's be civil.

*P.S.* Democrats, this letter applies to you, too.
