If Hitler wasn't banned then he would hold the record for most published with "Mein Kampf" and if you take population size into account, probably the best seller too.

I'm sure that there is a point to all of this, but finding it is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Boy oh boy, Tom Cruise and his pals sure spent a lot of money to buy up all of these "Books".

Now, they are all sitting in some wherehouse waiting to be GIVEN out to people in other countries.

In a few months you will be able to find these books in your local thrift shop for a buck or less.

Isn't PR web that site that takes any damn press release and publishes it without any scrutiny? I seem to recall some flap about a some teenager being awarded some prestigious prize that turned out to be an outright lie.
