Al is Back! Not Al Gore, but Al Franken!

Who said the “silly season” of politics stops on November 3? It doesn’t. It didn’t. In fact, you could say that this is the dawning of the age of meshuga (a Yiddish word best defined for an adult who’s too busy tweeting “covfefe” to hire a new FBI director).

But out from the middle of this fog emerge two menshes who do their homework. Yes, it’s the year of the Al. In “Briefly Noted,” Bren-Books.com already announced Al Gore’s new film, An Inconvenient Sequel, as well as two of his signed books that you can purchase for posterity.

This blog is, however, about the other Al. Al Franken, comedy writer, satirist, impersonator, radio host, and now distinguished Senator from the State of Minnesota. After many years of establishing his credentials as a Senator so as to be taken seriously, he has revived his trademark humor for his newest book, “Giant of the Senate.”

In honor of his newly released book, Bren-Books.Com offers three of his classics, two of them **Signed**!

And reasonably priced, we must say.

Yes, you should buy these books, because Al Franken is good enough, smart enough, and doggone it, people like him.

Remembering Elie Wiesel (1928-2016)

We mourn the passage of a great man, who inspired us by his writing and by his advocacy for all who are oppressed.

“Suffering gives man no privileges; it all depends on what he does with it. If he uses his suffering against man, he betrays it; if he uses it to fight evil and humanize destiny, then he elevates it and elevates himself.”

Bren-Books.com is proud to have a collection of his signed works.
