    With the evidence they will exalt,
    When they use the odes from bejohngalt,
    To assign our sentences at their gulags,
    For the denizens of the poliblogs,
    We will be found guilty by default.

    retlaw, your stick-figure Mohammed didn’t just “fall apart”…if you catch my drift. The last words he said before he fell apart were: “Allah akbar!”

    in re. doing a BJG book of poetry, and maybe some other threads, it would be a great thing to do. Minus some compensation for JM’s (or anyone else’s) time, the rest could not only go to maintain and grow the site, but to selected charities like Semper Fi Fund, Wounded Warriors, etc.

    As JM noted on the poetry site…we’re TOTAL neophytes in re this, however. 🙂

    OK, Not that I am looking for extra things to do, but I would volunter to do a Scribus DTP layout. Somebody else would need to come up with what is the content. Oh and LuLu is your friend.

    drdog, I sure hope someone else understands what you wrote above.

    “LuLu is your friend” sounds like one of those coded messages from WWII movies:
    “the geese fly backwards at dawn”…”John has a long mustache”…

    all that said…THX! I’ll make sure JM contacts you via email! cheers! 🙂

    Scribus is a Desktop Publishing (DTP) program. website.

    Lulu is a on-demand publishing platform. website They handle the publishing (hard or soft cover), fulfillment, payment, etc. That way BJG does not have any upfront costs. Whether you sell 5 or 500 they send you a check for what sells.

    I can come up with the content just by pouring through our archives. I can categorize them as well. Dad can put together a price of freedom type chapter or two scattered in there as well. If you can help me with the layout, or maybe we can do a conference call where I can see your computer screen and you can show me what to do?

    Probably the easiest approach is look in books or magazines for layouts you like. Or a quick sketch of an idea. I can do 3-4 concepts from that and send them to you. Then we can get fancy with a screen to screen conference for the refinements.

    Why not? A BJG book. Please don’t forget to include some of my most popular screaming fits. For the Sam Kinison types who read. Yeah.
