    The Potter books are best as unabridged audio during long drives. Jim Dale does the voices and he is exceptional at it.

    I find the X-wing Rogue Squadron series audio books best for long drives.

    Funny, the only Star Wars novels I have read are the X wing novels (plus the Zahn triogly). The X wing audio were OK, but they had the typicial problems with adbridgement. Never have found unabridged versions even in the public library.

    no you can't change it. but as chapter rep you don't have a one post per minute...i think it's something stupid like one post per 15 seconds.

    Yeah I hate it when Wal-Mart hasn't forseen my purchasing need for a day and therefore hasn't seen fit to stock 5000 stores with what I want, that day...

    Bears fan loses bet, prepares to change name to Peyton Manning

    DECATUR, Ill. (AP) -- How do you spell Scott Wiese?
    In a few weeks, that'd be P-e-y-t-o-n M-a-n-n-i-n-g.
    Wiese, a die-hard fan of the Chicago Bears, signed a pledge in front of a crowd at a Decatur bar last Friday night that if the Bears lost Sunday's Super Bowl, he'd change his name to that of the man who led the Indianapolis Colts to victory.
    Final Score: Colts 29, Bears 17.
    So on Tuesday, Wiese went to the Macon County Courts Facility and started the process of changing his name.
    "I made the bet, and now I've got to keep it," said the 26-year-old, who lives in Forsyth, just north of Decatur.
    Wiese will now have to advertise his intention in the local newspaper -- the Herald & Review -- for several weeks and then have a judge give him the OK to become, legally anyway, Peyton Manning.
    The men have little in common, Wiese acknowledges.
    Manning the quarterback is 30 years old, stands 6-foot-5 and has a contract with the Colts worth more than $100 million.
    Wiese is 5-foot-11 and works at a Staples office-supply store for somewhat less.
    "I think I kind of represent all Bears fans," he said. "Not that I'm saying they're all idiots like me, but I represent their passion because I really care about my team, you know?"
    Wiese's lawyer and friend, Andy Bourey, is handling the paperwork. He said he admires Wiese's sense of honor.
    "I never doubted him," he said. "He's a man of his word."
    While he pledged to take on the new identity, Wiese isn't sure how long he's willing to keep it.
    Say, maybe, until the Bears' next Super Bowl appearance? Not likely, given that their last trip to the big game was in 1985.
    "I mean, well, it may be another 21 years."


    Personally I think he should change it to Rex Grossman...
