January 8, 2004 - Point of order. Shelly, the Editor-in-Chief of Scr(i)pt Magazine was extraordinarily polite in her message to Henrik and me pointing out that Scr(i)pt Magazine is found at and that there was great potential for confusion between the two. I, personally, feel extraordinary embarrassed because, I actually have a subscription to Scr(i)pt Magazine and because I never took the time to pop 'ScriptMag' into google to see if anyone else was using it. So, you can imagine how much of an idiot I feel right now. (Come back next week for the launch of my new bookselling website. I'm trying to think of a name for it. Hmm. "Amazon" has a nice ring to it...)

Hey, Marie rockets to us information on an excellent transcript of Five Minutes from the Station which you can read on Kingrr's Home Page.
