Japanese Law: An Economic Approach, by Minoru
Nakazato and J. Mark Ramseyer, 1999, 310 pages, $45.00. Law via
stories, which is the way law schools usually teach it, and a good
- 3. Timothy Keller sermons on tape.
Pastor Keller, of Manhattan, is wise and engaging in
the plain style, and he tackles tough topics.
- 4. The New Yorker cartoon website,Www.newyorker.com/cartoon.html.
You can search a huge, though not complete database by
keyword, and buy reprint rights if you wish.
Christ the King Presbyterian Church, 99 Prospect Street,
Central Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts. This year we've been
attending here this half-Brazilian church meeting in an old Catholic
building. It's full of energy, sound in doctrine, and has Brazilian
meals every week after church.
- 6. Photo RAM cards for laptops. There are various
incompatable styles of these, but the idea in all of them is that
they fit either in a tiny card-reader or a digital camera and hold

I don't usually like tea much, but this tea is different.
My Man Godfrey, 1936, Carole Lombard and William
Powell, $3.99. A clever and heart-warming story about a bum

nonmessy, it is educational, and you can even draw supply and demand
diagrams on it.
- 11. Olive Tree's
Bible Reader Palmpilot Bible freeware program. It
turns out this is the most useful feature of my palmpilot, which is
why the program makes it on this list but the Palmpilot does not.
461K for New Testament, about 1300K more for Old Testament, in 10
groups of books.
- 12. Dr. Seuss books. Parents won't get as
tired of these as of some others. I had never read the 1972
Marvin K. Mooney, Will You Please Go Now , given
my 1958 nativity, but though it is not quite
The Cat in the Hat, or
One Fish,Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish , it is
