My colleague John Hanchette and I have decided to write a book. So far, all we have is a title, but we think it's a winner:

"Festival Seating in Hell."

Milton's hell or Dante's hell?

I'm thinking the hell from James Joyce's "Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man."

Trying to read that book is hell in itself.

I find I can't read challenging stuff in very large doses.

Which reminds me: I've got a boatload of Chaucer to read for next week. Yikes!

Agreed. I don't mind James Joyce in general, but can't stand the Portrait.

C'mon! The section on hell almost had me heading straight for the confessional.

You can plug it on your radio show. By the time we get the book written, you'll be nationwide.

I would take a late night drive to Barnes & Noble to get a copy of that book.

We're going to be bigger than Harold Potter.

We're working on arrangements to have our party at the same place and time as the release party for Conrad Black.
