    ROBERTS RULE!

    I was Bobby in grade school, and Bob in High School and have been Robert since the first time I dropped out of college and need people to take me seriously. This book was passed to me from a neighbor who works at a newspaper who got it free. This turns out to be an expensive gift because now I might have to get one for my pastor, and my good friend that is president of our 2 man drinking club, The Bobs even though none of us are in the book. But Bobby Knight is, so that's OK. Great gift.
