November 10, 2008: Will: Awww... Michael Crichton died. Michael Crichton's Publisher: Yes, and as his publisher, I can't allow that to happen. Will: Excuse me? Kepler: It's okay, Will. This man got me a sample of Michael Crichton's DNA. We're going to try a few things. Will: I don't think I like where this is going. Kepler: He even gave me a blank check. Spare no expense, he said!
November 12, 2008: Kepler: Will, help us! We thought we could get rich by creating a clone of Michael Crichton. We got his DNA off of a chewed pencil, but the sample was incomplete so we filled in the missing gaps with DNA from blogger Glenn Reynolds. Now the Crichton Clone is writing all the time, but for free! It's a financial disaster! Michael Crichton's Publisher: I knew we should have used Stephen King's DNA! Kepler: Oh, please... techno-horror? There's no market for that!
November 14, 2008: Al: It's been a long time coming. Mitch: I never thought I'd see it in my lifetime. Al: The day is finally here! Mitch: Let's make history! Will: You're a little late. Voting was last week. Al: Voting? We're downloading the new Guns'n'Roses song.
