“the point of Canon Press”

But the point of Canon Press is to — when they make money from it — is to turn the money back around into books, the publication of additional books.

Which is why I’m now scheduled for invasive brain surgery at USC on May 2. (For those of you who asked why I showed up late to Grace Agenda, now you know! I was meeting with my surgeon in LA. . .)
