Did you ever notice that virtually all publishers are liberal Democrats and further to the left? I thought Republicans were greedy, and liberals were in every way virtuous and generous, caring nothing for money.

Actually, there is almost no profit in book publishing. It was traditionally a family owned hobby prestige business. There is real concern now that book publishing as we know it will fail as an industry. The problem is that most books lose money, and the authors of the blockbusters extract most of the profit to themselves. So if it is all controlled by liberal Dems (actually Random House is now controlled by a German concern), rather than greedy, they are just stupid, at least when it comes to money.

Actually, my press is not leftist - quite the contrary. Too bad we're still tiny. Honestly, you're right - most of the big houses are hard left.
