Entertainment suggestion

You know what I'd buy if they made it? A DVD with nothing but the last couple of minutes of those book-store readings and literary confabs C-Span 2 shows all weekend, every weekend. Wouldn't that be interesting? Over and over, people clapping, standing up, gawping and stretching, looking around, bending over for their purses and coats, edging up to the front of the room for a small word with the author. I could watch for hours.

They could even make a series of "best of" discs, maybe include some bloopers--author(s) railing at the audience before passing out drunk, crazy guys attacking the college kid holding the microphone--heck, didn't they find some old crock dead in his folding chair once after a talk by Gore Vidal?
