Book Excerpt for the Day

    “Anatoly, come back in,” Duvall said through the window.  “For God’s sake, you’re not wearing pants.”
    Kerensky turned around, following her voice.  “This isn’t a ship,” he yelled up to the window.
    “No, it’s the Best Western Media Center Inn and Suites,” Duvall said.  “In Burbank.”
    “Is that a planet?” Kerensky yelled.  “What system is it in?”
    “Oh, for Christ’s sake,” Hester muttered.  “You’re on Earth, you moron,” he yelled at Kerensky.
    Kerensky looked around disbelievingly.  “Was there an apocalypse?” he yelled.
    Hester looked at Duvall.  “You actually have sex with this imbecile?”
