Chapter and worse

Customers who didn't buy this item also didn't buy... Amazon says a dispute between it and the publisher of books by several well-known authors, could drag on for some time and means that some 5,000 titles won't be available on its website.

It's a shame that we don't have something like a store where you could go and buy books by your favorite authors — I don't know — call it a store for books or a book store.

Take the wheel: Google is building a test fleet of 100 self-driving cars that could eventually roam public roads. The cars would have no steering wheel or gas or brake pedals. Passengers would enter a destination and let the subcompact cars do the driving at a top speed of 25 mph.

And if you ask the attendant at Disneyland nicely, he'll let you go around twice.

Don't know much about history: On this day in 1932, World War I vets arrived in Washington, D.C., to demand cash bonuses they weren't scheduled to receive until 1945.

The good news is those same WWI veterans now have a Tuesday appointment to see a VA doctor.
