Everyone knew her as Nancy

Book Lust author, former Tulsan, action figure model, and increasingly visible library poster person Nancy Pearl was featured on NPR's Morning Edition today, giving book recommendations to Steve Inskeep. The topic, briefly, was "political books for people who are sick of hearing about politics". She spoke about several political novels, including Henry Adams' Democracy from 1876, and the classic All the King's Men.

Re:Don't DO that!

I think the title refers to a Firesign Theatre sketch, which itself refers to Rocky Raccoon on the White Album?
