********* Oh yeah! I was trying to recall the name of both the author and the book. I thought it was pretty good. Its been a long time though. The part I remember best was some pretty raw sex between Matt and some other high ranking official... I think they called her the "Ice Princess" or something like that. Evidently, Pigtown was a reference to way back when that area of New York was still farmland.

By the way, everybody... just seen that Cape Fear is gonna be on TBS 8PM Sunday night. The new one with Nick Nolte and Robert DeNiro.

And where can I get a guide that tells me what's on TCM? The guide that comes with our newspaper doesn't have the station. Would a TV Guide do it? I'm pissed that I missed all them good Chandler movies!
