What It's Like When You're Expecting...a Book

My copies of KILLING DESPAIR arrived yesterday, and it got me thinking that expecting a book is a lot like expecting a baby. *When you tell people about it too early, all those months of waiting detract from the excitement. *You can't be sure when it's going to happen, despite the dates the experts throw out there. *There are periods of discomfort, and you have to remind yourself that something good is going to result. *Friends are supportive, but they're seldom as excited as you are about the coming event. *You wait for it to be "over" but soon learn there's more work after it's "over" than you ever imagined.

The Upper Class of Jim

What's the song about Jim or Jimmy... 1. In which the untimely death of an agricultural titan is celebrated by employee misbehavior and lack of concern. 2. In which the speaker wonders about the return of her lover, fearing she'll be distracted by a rival suitor. 3. In which the tragic death of a societal outcast is brought about by parental interference. 4. In which the life of a simply country boy is chronicled by harmonious church instruments. 5. In which a locally-known criminal is brought to justice in a seedy billiards parlor. 1. "Jimmy Crack Corn" (Smothers Brothers' version) 2. "Jimmy Mack" 3. "Leader of the Pack" 4. "The Bells" 5. "Don't Mess Around with Jim"
