    I heard a woman caller on the Hannity show say she called Borders to locate a copy, and the clerk told her they are (get this)! pulling it off the shelves and reacalling it because it's found to be untrue. WHAT!!!!!!
    So I went home and did some calling myself, and sure enough I got a very similar response, it was being recalled and they don't plan to sell anymore copies, so of course I said to the little elitist hippie lib that they should start pulling all the Al Franken books, and Clinton books etc. He just stammered something like well it wasn't my decision.

    My head is ready to explode with rage :blowup:

    And the LIBS want to talk about cencorship????? :finger:

    I just called my Border's after reading this. They said they don't have it in stock and our taking orders. When I asked how long, she said, "From what we've been told, even the distributors don't have it." :wtf:

    Borders, if true, is opening itself up for a HUGE lawsuit. If you own their stock, I would sell it!

    It's very available on Vet's website. Hopefully the Borders by you has more integrity, although Im a little dubious of the whole distributors don't have it. Who knows anymore??

    They are still selling it online. After work, I am going to drop by the Borders right across the street and see what they say....

    Notice the delivery time! Cutting it pretty close to the election ain't they? I wonder if this is a publishing problem, or part of a larger plan?

    Price: $19.01 & eligible for FREE Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25. See details.
    You Save: $8.94 (32%)

    Well it's either some dastardly plan by the Kerry camapign, or a lot of people want to read this book and the distributors can't keep up with demand..whihc would be a much better scenario...... :cool: Im ordering it online just to have a copy.

    I just called Barnes& Noble, and was told they originally were not going to carry the book due to lack of interest (yeah right) ,but thye recieved a lot of calls asking for it so they have ordered a limited number based upon a pre order list, and they should be in by late Sept??? Whatever?

    talking about.
