Correction: A dagger for Huckabee

Posted By on Tue, Dec 22, 2009 at 6:18 AM

An item yesterday said incorrectly that an asterisk indicated there'd been bulk buying of Mike Huckabee's latest, a volume of Christmas memories. Actually, a different typographical symbol -- a dagger -- indicated that there have been bulk buys of the Huckabee book from stores that go into the NY Times hardcover bestseller list, where the book appears at No. 14. Discussion has long raged about the prevalence of bulk buys among right-wing authors (also Glenn Beck's book on the latest NYT list). Manipulation of the lists? Or an outpouring of enthusiasm for masterpieces? You read and you decide. Just remember that if you choose to buy, don't pay retail. Huck's latest, priced at $19.95, is available new for $11.19.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
