My blog doesn't "PROMOTE", "STUDY", or otherwise consider Ed Sanders' book... "THE DEFINITIVE WORD" ON ANYTHING TLB-RELATED. If any Dickwads must know the history of my "Book Club", read below:
When my blog first opened, I asked my members to brainstorm ideas for threads. I said "any, and all suggestions would be considered". Mary (one of our regulars)... suggested that we do a "book discussion group". I thought it was a good "interactive" idea. Everyone agreed. We set about the task of deciding which book to cover (first) as a group.
I had recently bought Jess Bravin's book on Squeaky. But, I figured (Squeaky alone) was too specific.
I figured (to start) something more universal like "Helter Skelter", or "The Family" would simply cover MANY more topics... PISS-OFF MORE PEOPLE... and HENCE (MOTHERFUCKERS)... generate more discussion, and more posts. That's how the book was chosen. As a bonus... several members already had a copy of "The Family".
I told the group, that we'd choose ANOTHER book after "The Family" was finished, and many proposed "The Rail-Roading of Charles Manson". I'm game! I don't PROMOTE Sanders book. It's a vehicle to generate discussion. If you wanna participate by saying that "Sanders sucks dick"... that's your business. C'mon down.
The "Book Club" is a vehicle to promote discussion... and a filler, when things are slow "news-wise" in TLB-Land. Everyone GOT IT NOW?!
