      *------------ Thought of the Day ---------------*
   
      John Kenneth Galbraith wrote that when a big 
      corporation pays a big salary to a big boss, it's 
     "not a market award for achievement. It is 
      frequently in the nature of a warm personal 
      gesture by the individual to himself."

What's your opinion on Golf?

It seems like you either love it or just don't understand 
the attraction. This hilarious DVD explores a golfers 
infatuation with driving, chipping, putting and all things 
golf related.

You won't believe the ridiculous ways golfers obsess over 
the sport. Of the 60 million golfers worldwide, only a handful 
are really good, which begs the question: "Why do the rest of 
us even bother?"

This makes a wonderful gift for any golf nut. Even if you don't 
love the game, this is one funny DVD. And at the reduced price 
of just $12.99 (a savings of $7.00), you've got to get it.
