I'll kill myself, thank you very much.

visit my blog I think it may interest you. Here's a little teaser of what's in store:

I'm a 33 unredeemed heroin addict... my father was murdered by infamous British serial kiler Dennis Nilsen... my mother is a 58 year old crackhead... best friend found dead in my room... stepmother sentenced to life imprisonment for murder... & there's more... & it's all true.

I hope to se you soon, if not take care & best wishes, Shane

Meanwhile, back on topic--it seems to me that publishing is going to have to publish its way out of the recession: the only way to increase revenue is to keep publishing, and to sell more copies... now all we have to do is work out how to achieve that!

Can I nab your picture to use on the intra-web site at work? Huh, huh? We're in the publishing industry, newspaper publishing, and this year MIGHT kill us.
