    Dave's comment reminded me of an old story. John D. McDonald, while traveling, wandered into a used book store and supposedly was appalled at all his books for sale there that wouldn't generate a penny of royalties to him. It is said that he grabbed a copy of one of his novels and wrote on the inside cover, "The last owner of this book had a terrible, contagious disease."Terry Sanford
