And now it is timefor tonight's #HashtagWars.

(cheers and applause)

This coming Saturdaywill be the 228th anniversary

of The Power of Sympathy, or the Triumph of Nature,

the first American novel

with the firsttwo American book titles,

'cause some indecisive,savvy, addled writer

couldn't get his (bleep)together. This was

the first step in America's lovefor the written word,

especially when those words areon a dollar menu, so in honor of

The Power of Sympathy,

or The Triumph of Idiotic Names legacy,

tonight's hashtag is#MakeABookAmerican.

Examples might beGuns, Germs and Guns,
