    There may be controversy over the temperature question, no doubt, but I think the data speaks for itself about man's continual contribution to the depletion of the ozone and steady increase in the buildup of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

    Mark your calendars. Yesterday Art showed me I was wrong about the pricing at Kroger's. They are now, for the most part, labeled in ounces. I was wrong. My reality has changed again. Thank you Art, I will stop maligning Krogers for using arbitrary weights and measures to confuse customers on pricing.

    I would have to go with the order they are in, that being said they all look very interesting. Kurzweil, Oullette, and Alexander. I must say the little color ball on Oullette's book cover caused me some frustration since I am red green color blind, my wife tells me there is a question mark in it, but that is her reality not mine.

    Very interesting choices! Since I do not normally come, I do not feel any right to vote but will be interested in what is selected! (I love the first title by Kurzweil :-)

    Hi - If I have never attended a meeting of any kind, would it be OK to crash the party for the Bookclub"s meeting, and of course do not know what the current book is. Thanks for any help John M
