The Horn Book Came!

The January/February issue of The Horn Book arrived so I have some interesting things to talk about for a couple of days.

The issue starts out with a really amusing (amusing, not gut-bustingly funny) editorial by Roger Sutton, The Horn Book's editor. Evidently, he was asked to appear on Bill O'Reilly's show to discuss Madonna's children's book The English Roses. Now, I refuse to pass judgement on Madonna's book because I haven't read it. Evidently that doesn't stop ol' Bill, who says, according to Sutton, that he's only "looked at it." Sutton's response? "...we're not talking about The English Patient here: Harvard grad O'Reilly should have been able to get through Madonna's book in ten minutes..." Actually, I think O'Reilly got his undergraduate degree from Marist College in Poughkeepsie. Maybe he has a graduate degree from Harvard.

Anyway, the editorial is amusing, has a point that any fool can understand, and is short. My three biggest requirements for a piece of magazine nonfiction!

The game has a lot of rf gold, as long as you join to play this game you will get
them. you should try your best to earn as much rf online gold as you can, so you are strong and no one can
fight you. you can get a lot of rf money in the game, so many other players want to play with you together. As long as you have the rf cp you will be strong and you can go to kill the monsters to upgrade alone. i like the cheap rf gold very much.
