THANKS!!

...to everyone who attended my Seattle book party for THE ME GENERATION...BY ME. Even Santa was there. I'm trying to get him to buy 5,000,000 copies and hand them out to the all the kiddies on Xmas morning.  I can't think of a more perfect gift for children than a humorous memoir of the 1960s.

Santa is a cool guy. 5 million seems a little low, though. Look at all the people in China who think the Sixties was just the Cultural Revolution.

It was nice meeting you again. My son enjoyed it, too.

And I thought I came a long way for an autograph!

Very busy at work, hopefully, we can catch up somewhere in the future and I can get my copy autographed!

Great. Glad it went well. And I know many a small child will have their Christmas made into cheery perfection when they finally get to read how you lost your virginity. I know it's our favorite Christmas story at my house.

(BTW, Paul Ryan has vowed to "Shut Santa down!" He's just empowering kids to sponge off him. If he gave tools to kids and taught them to make their own toys, THEN he'd be okay with Ryan. According to Ryan, Santa's red suit is no mere coincidence; it's his coded admission that he's a communist! Christmas is Socialism, and no good Christian will have anything to do with Christmas.)

Doug...I've actually had a couple of encounters with people who don't celebrate Christmas because they feel, among other things, Santa is an anagram of Satan--although they were more the fundie Protestant type, and I think they were trying to get me to come to their church. That's happened to me a few more times over the years--I don't have a smiling countenance like you and Tallulah and Ken, so people presume I need their God (I have enough problems with the one I got).

Sorry I missed you, but I took the family to El Toro instead. I had a cheeseburger and fries. And, frankly, I hate to go to Seattle.

A wonderful example of blinkered ignorance. They've worked out that "Santa" is an anagram of Satan, but not that it's a literal translation of "Saint". So then, by their logic, ALL Saints are Satanists! Satan Paul, Satan Peter, Satan Joan, oh the satatinists at work in Heaven!

Why does any intelligent person still go into a church in the 21st Century?

My brother and his son went to Monday's game and before it had the chance to meet you and get the book signed. They had a good time, and the M's won that night(and the game after that, and the one this afternoon). The M's are now just a couple of games behind the Angels.
