“Actually, Jim, I'm not sure that's true. I am definitely pro-eBook, and some of that has to do with being older and having some difficulty getting around.”

“Not everyone can afford a Kindle, but there are less expensive options in eReaders. And eBooks tend to be less expensive.”

“Hello, No one much likes sitting at a computer to read a book. Do you even know what an eBook looks like?

“Kindle Paperwhite tells you how many pages you have left, will even tell you how much time it will take to finish. People want eBooks because you can get one any time -- and some of us find ourselves in that situation.

I've always respected Mr. King, this canonization is a getting a little tiresome.”

“Your problem is trying to read on iPad; they are too big and cumbersome. I had an eReader before I had an iPad. Nostalgia is fine, but don't confuse it with a lack of progress.”

“Seriously, this argument on the gloriousness of tree books is probably being made by some of the very same folks who are all up in our business about telling us to reduce our carbon footprint. I'm sorry the book stores have to suffer, but so did the cowboys with the invention of barbed wire. Look how many people have lost their jobs to automation -- yet somehow bookstores are sacrosanct? I don't think you can beat the convenience of eBooks -- and being part of the aging Baby Boomer generation -- which King is -- some of us don't get around all that easily -- nor do we have chauffeurs. I used to think that even with his millions, King wasn't removed form the plight of the common folk -- not so much anymore.”

Kat Lib on May 26, 2013 at 19:59:23

“What, new trees can't be planted? When did they become a non-renewable resource? I too am a Baby Boomer, and disabled, but I can still get to the Barnes & Noble that is less than a few miles away. If not, I can always order on-line (which is usually cheaper anyway). E-readers are not convenient when the battery runs down or something is wrong with the software. I have spent the last week re-reading many books I enjoyed that were published in the 70's and 80's. They were books I still had on my shelves after so many years. When I looked at books by the same authors on Nook, almost none were available, although most were available in paperback from B&N or from their market sellers.”

“Not everything known or thought needs to be uttered. Ugly is not code for old. People thought Jeffries was ugly not due to age but due to the obvious distortions of his skin as the result of cosmetic surgery. James Coburn looked sexy until the day he died and his face wasn't stretched in five different directions. If you're a film maker, then it would seem to me that you would appreciate more diversity in people. Or are you just a film maker who hasn't really make any films? Regardless, the most revolting thing is your attitude.”

“British Academy award nominee actually.  Anyway, my 'attitude' is only an attitude because you don't agree with me.  People think he is ugly because of what came out of his mouth.  Because he said what is usually not said.  If he was the good guy the same people would be commending his youthful looks.  You people are so funny.  Sadly, this controversy only made him richer.    ”

“The government doesn't need to get involved, but neither do you, by defending a company whose CEO made some indefensible remarks. Or maybe you work for them.”

“I'm defending their right to be stupid, because they aren't harming anybody.

It's better that the market resolve this, because if they remain stupid, people will eventually stop buying their stuff and they go out of business.

A win win for everyone.”

“I am so tired of explaining to people that Freedom of Speech has never been unfettered. No one is entitled to say ANYTHING s/he wants. There are limits. Slander, perjury, for example. You can't cry, "Fire" in a crowded theatre unless the the theatre is actually on fire -- even then, probably not a great idea. While the remarks might not meet the criteria for slander, Jeffries -- as everyone else -- is accountable for his words.

I can most certainly say that someone is wrong for his/her beliefs -- that is my right to free speech -- and I will most certainly exercise that right when someone makes abusive, divisive comments. If someone says it's okay for adults to have sex with children, at the end of the day, it is most certainly wrong and I will tell them that.

I also find it amusing that you speak about an unlearned mind when you've clearly missed a lot of words in your post. One word: Proofreading.”
