600 or the 1000 copies have moved out of the store already.  How wonderful a little YouTube would be of a German priest in a sort of … what was that movie with Arnold where he was trying to get the toy for the kid before Christmas…? … going from bookstore to bookstore and everyone is snatching this book up before he gets there…. Anyway…

We are not yet sure about another printing of the book.  They are daft if they don’t.  Pecunia non olet, after all.
