I've got to control myself with all this book-buying. Otherwise, I won't have any time to keep up with all the latest news about the Schwarzeneggar administration, the new TV season, celebrity divorces, etc., etc., not to mention all the even more important questions being addressed by other bloggers, such as whether it was the White House or the Navy that hung a sign saying "Mission Accomplished," or what Howard Dean meant when he called himself a "metrosexual."
