I know, I know. How brain dead do you think I am? Don't answer that...

I've read everything you've written. I know what you do. And...come to think... Half... No, wait, I'm no good at math. Some fraction of my family is from Philadelphia (my father's side) plus I have all sorts of friends there and other family spread around PA. Pennsylvania... Do you know the one about "There's Philadelphia and Pittsburgh and Mississippi in between"? I have lots of friends "in between" so I know that one.

I'm sure you're busy, too, so having that easy-peasy LOA version of Baldwin to lug around will keep you from having to search for all his books individually. Then you can spend years--at your leisure--reading whenever the mood strikes.

Instead of wasting your time reading garbage like what I write.
