It really doesn't matter Phil. I'm not even used to being in the top 20 - and my ex-wife puts me way, way lower than that!

Its not easy being a pillar, I am always suspicious of men who are considered heros by their wives !

Hi Phil, your book is on its way to you with a set of the new 42c Journalist stamps on it.
Sorry I couldn't put any "Ole Blue Eyes" stamps on it - I just got some of those today.

Thank you t360!

I always knew that ignoring my wife and kids, letting the grass grow three feet tall, and posting on the site at work would pay off.

Of course my wife is about to divorce me, my neighbors have started a petition against me and the boss has me on supervised work parole for six months, but it's worth every bit of the pain to be a "Pillar of the Community."

Thank you t360. I think I'll leave the US related books to those that can better use them. And since you've generously offered the third choice - a book on Early Germany, I'm honor bound to take it.

Thank you again for your consideration.
