LOL. The guy on the cover was obviously beyond returning except for the dead.

glad you printed publication date. I thought that was an Art Deco cover. Great design on the book.

I hope Lewis didn't forget his follow-up!

Okay, so I want to know if he showed up for the appointment.

Or maybe he's still sitting in the waiting room and the doc is slow.

Hope he remembered the appointment.

Absolutely amazing, I know Dr. Pollock and he is still in Cooperstown, although long since retired! I'll have to ask him if the fellow ever showed...
