Not all changes are bad, and this is a great addition to Malibu! If this bookstore-coffee shop wasn't there, it would be at the top of my wish list. Thanks to all involved.

I loved to see you at our part of this event which will take place on Saturday November 3rd starting at 10:00 am From Polygamy to the Electoral College: Husband and Wife Authors Navigate the 2012 Presidential Election Authors Zoe Murdock and Dr. Everett E. Murdock will read and discuss their latest books which take on two significant issues related to the 2012 presidential election: Mormon polygamy and the Electoral College. Zoe Murdock will read and discuss her book, “Torn by God,” a novel based on events that happened when her father got involved with polygamy when she was a child. Dr. Everett E. Murdock will read and discuss his book, “Obama Will Win, but Romney Will Be President: How Political Parties Target Electoral College Votes to Win Presidential Elections.” By looking at historical trends and analyzing current polls, Dr. Murdock will discuss the distinct possibility that what happened in the 2000 presidential election may well happen again; that is, Barrack Obama may win the popular vote, but lose in the Electoral College.
