The second comment comes from anonymous--I think the same one who sent us that review of The Stardust Kid yesterday. (don't froget to come to Imaginon or Matthews and get your free book) He said:
Now I know, in fact, WE ALL know, you ARE the Great and Powerful Carlman.....but do you really want to go and poke Darth Bill with a Light Saber?????? This seems to me to be just asking for trouble.I don't believe in all the history of Jedis and Siths, I have ever heard of a Sith backing down from a challenge. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens.
You must understand, anonymous, that the Great and Powerful CARLMAN is not afraid of anything so paltry as a light saber. Have you ever heard the old saying that "the pen is mightier than the sword"? Well, the CARLMAN knows that the pen (or the keybaord) is infinitely more poswerful than the light saber. Reading is power, guys, and that is where the Great and Powerful CARLMAN derives his awesome might. The CARLMAN has traveled many hundreds of years through time and space and has seen how reading has toppled empires, freed people, and changed history. Frederick Douglas raised himself from slavery when he learned to read. Thomas Paine helped start a revolution in the American colonies with his pamphlet Common Sense, and Charles Dickens's books ended terrible working conditions in England--and almost single-handedly revived Christmas with A Christmas Carol. Even today, bloggers are making dictatorial governments admit things they try to cover up. So keep at it, guys! READING IS POWER!!! One day, perhaps, one of YOU will run a guys' reading blog. Then boys everywhere will find about terrific books from the Awesome ANONYMOUS, the Sensationally Superpowered CYBER KID, Magnificent and Mighty MIKEY (aka Lord Vader), or the Beyond the Imagination BRUNER BOYS!!!!
BTW, anonymous, I have requested The Stardust Kid from another branch. It'll take a copuple or three days to get here. Can't wait! Also, I have never seen a sith back down from a challenge either. I just have to wonder howhe is.
