Correction: the authors who began the Chicken Soup series are Jack Canfield and 
Mark Victor Hansen, not Rick Hanson. And I'm still sure that the series did NOT 
begin in FF as turq stated!

    Jeez, turq, now you're blaming the TMO for chicken soup?! FYI, Jack 
Canfield and Rick Hanson never lived in FF, though Marci Shimoff did. Read it 
and weep: Marci Shimoff is the best selling, non fiction, woman author of all 
time. Put that in your pipe and smoke it. 
PS Making any progress on that thorn in your paw?

like "awful, mawkish, obvious, painful, unbearable, unenjoyable, and scarring" 
and "a noxious sludge of sentimental woo-woo" just don't do its 
horriblenessitude justice. 

Someone I had known back in the TM movement once tried set me up on a "coffee 
date" with one of the Chicken Soup authors. It was horrific, almost the worst 
date in my life (for the record, the worst was with Barbara De Angelis)...I 
lasted less than five minutes before making some excuse and running away, and 
had to wash my ears out in the coffeeshop restroom before I felt human again.
