    Re: Tip of the Week, having talked with you about the content, I’m with you all the way – one reads the quotations to make the point. But honestly, if it was a book in support of those positions, like you, I would not be the one reading it, nor would I hope to hear the voice of a friend,

    That said, I don’t know how many people will read this today, Election Day, but if you do, please be sure to vote, no matter which candidates you support. Especially in the current political climate (overheated yet ice cold); there are no longer and “off year” elections, just those for different offices. And if “all politics is local,” here in New Jersey we have a large number of important town, county and state elections where position and action matter more than party affiliation. If you can’t vote for someone you like, at least vote against someone you don’t. Let the power be with the elected people, not the unelected demagogues who have hijacked the nation’s airwaves. Confound the skeptics and let’s have a good turnout!

    PS – typo: the line should be ANY “off year” elections, not “and.” Thanks – see you at the polls.

    I’m going to fall back on an old excuse… “if the script calls for it, and it’s in keeping with the reality portrayed by the piece”. Yes, and I’d probably get my kit off as well if it were appropriate… something like a horror movie 🙂

    Admittedly, I’m referring to works of fiction, but I’m in the middle of recording a few audiobooks, and there are loads of F-Bombs, one or two C-Bombs, and the occasional N-Bomb. In all cases, I’m happy that the language is in keeping with the characters, and the social attitudes of the book’s time-frame and/or setting. Of course, you can make your fictional characters as reprehensible as you like, and “street” language will always be what it is. Personally, I’m offended at transparent attempts to bowdlerize such pieces.
