        This is supposedly "a startlingly accurate preview of what would eventually become the 'Star Wars' prequels." Yeah, might want to double-check the meaning of "accurate" there, HuffPo. This looks like the story that was hinted at for years, until 1999 turned it all upside down.

        But I am looking forward to Rinzler's next SW book.

      Those have always been overpriced, IMHO. Sad, really. But they are quality cards, so I guess you pay what you get for.

      They sure like that 3-2 score; every one of the Pens' three wins so far ended that way, after tonight's Cup Final rematch against the Sharks.
