    In light of the Mel Hall saga, it's a little relieving to find out there's no horrifying/disgusting coda/epilogue.

    I'll definitely read the story if Fred McGriff endorses it.

    Shoot I used to love some of those mail-order ads you'd see on cable. Guthy-Renker had a ton, Tony Robbins, Tom Wu, Dave Del Dotto's Cash-Flow institute, the little-tiny ads guy, Ron Popeil. And to this day I can't trust a British guy who is selling a food cooker one week and a cleaning solution the next.
