Treat yourself this weekend -- and because I love you: Fifth Assassin is just $1.99 on all ebooks until Sunday. I’m cheaper than a Snickers bar (regular size, not a mini)"

Also, Winter Soldier does just about everything right. Like watching one of my favorite comics. Plus, women near me agreed, Bucky smolders like a Twilight vampire.

Finally saw Frozen last night. When Elsa sings that final, “The cold never bothered me anyway,” that’s the best ‘eff you’ anyone’s ever sang in a cartoon.

That and the big falling-in-love song are only upbeat and positive if you take them out of the context of the story.

For those emailing, here's a clip from me on CNN talking about conspiracies surrounding the Malaysia Airlines flight: 'How do you keep everyone quiet?' Let's not forget that all conspiracy theories are a reflection of our fears.

As we think about the beautiful recovery in Boston today -- and all those determined to get back up -- my brain is also with two of my favorite runners:  Team Hoyt.  Last race was supposed to be their last.  The bombing stopped that.  So they're back this year to finish.  Still two of the best heroes.  Here's their story:
When Dick and Judy Hoyt’s son was born with cerebral palsy, unable to walk or talk, the doctors told them to just “put him away.”
No, they decided.
They’d push him, pull him, they’d carry him along.
But he’d never be left behind.
When the public schools said there was no place for Rick, his parents found a computer that would write his thoughts from the few head movements he could make.
At ten, he spoke his first sentence. “Go Bruins!”
In high school, Rick learned of a five-mile charity run for a newly paralyzed teenager.
Rick told his father they had to do something to send a message that life goes on.
Even though he wasn’t a runner, Dick never hesitated.
He’d run the race, pushing Rick’s wheelchair the whole way.
They finished next to last. It was a victory.
That night, Rick typed out these words: “Dad, when I’m running, it feels like my disability disappears.”
Dick’s mission was clear.
He kept running, Rick always out in front.
234 triathlons, 67 marathons, 6 ironmans.
Rick Hoyt still can’t walk.
But with his father, they both fly. ★

Team Hoyt’s motto: Yes you can.

Great Inspiration. Yes nothing happened this year, but then again, no nut jobs made an effort, and that's all it really takes. But look at those faces! When Boston said "Who's gonna step up this year?" and citizens like this step forward raise a hand, and say "I will",  I'm not surprised the
event went off just fine. How ya gonna stop folks that "roll" like this ! :)

At Passover, youngest son tells me that if Moses couldn't get the slaves free, Abraham Lincoln would’ve freed them. I believe my work as a parent is done.

? Who is telling kids that the Civil War was about slavery ? That's the biggest problem we have in this country, politicians and public school workers re-writing history, and getting it wrong EVERY time! The best thing you can tell your kids is the truth about history. It's pretty easy, especially when dealing with the "Human" experience, since the only "variable" you have to account for is what Humans have done, which is on the whole, 99.9 % worthless, everything else is "natural". So tell your kids the truth, and they'll lives will be so much better. And what you should tell your kids is this: Right now, unless something changes, you are a member of an extinct species that lives on a dead planet. The only person that has the power to change that is you. Every generation that has preceeded you has ALMOST gotten it right, but then they start listening to people like Ghandi and Chairman Mao and the Kardashians and NASA and it all turns to POOP! Here's EVERYTHING you need to know about what history teaches us. We can't stay here. The Universe doesn't work that way. Our planet is ALREADY dead, and we need to leave it behind. You might want to get started on that, oh yeah, and also, build a planetary defense mechanism for rogue celestial bodies and hope a GRB doesn't happen anyplace nearby and you might have a chance. How hard is that? :) Some day our children will be enlightened. I wish them all the best, because the Universe only has one purpose. Exterminate life wherever you find it. That's the way it was "created". The idea is be someplace else when the little corner of the Universe that you live in decides to have a hissy. History tells us that TRULY advanced races don't live on planets, they CONSUME them. Just like the Universe does! Imagine. An entire Universe full of "angry monkeys"! Want proof? it's in the Bible, starts like this "go forth"! See? How hard was that? The trick is to use what's between your ears and NOT listen to people like Abe, or Ghandi, or Stalin or Steve Harvey! (Sorry, I'm gonna let Steve off the hook, he in fact does get it, demonstrates that, and does give some good advice) And I have hope. My generation got it wrong too, but when I talk to my kids and grandkids? Yeah, it's like that. The situ always looks brighter when you put the "smart" kids on the job ! ;)

Started my birthday today by teaching an English class at the University of Michigan. Then logged off to find the best homemade card by my book partner Chris Eliopoulos.  And of course, will end with the same thing that made me happy when I was 18:  Benihana and Carvel cake.  Love and thank you to every one of you for the birthday love -- and for being part of our family.

Today is my wedding anniversary.  I will celebrate it in the same way we always do.  By sharing my pal Paul Feig's teaser trailer for the new Peanuts movie (and yes, the opening shot can be my head too):  Peanuts | Teaser Trailer [HD] | FOX Family
