In The Event Of My Untimely Demise - Paperback Release

The paperback version of In the Event of My Untimely Demise also has a new cover design. The book is no longer red like a fire engine. It looks like a lockbox.

Not A Doctor But Play One on Glenn Beck - 03-19-09

My favorite part of these things is the automatically generated transcript, which the Fox site warns "may not be 100% accurate." I'd say. More like the ramblings of a guy wandering down the middle of Fifth Avenue.
