There really ought to be a way to order from abroad. Yeah, sure, I could ask my parents to send it to me. But they'd probably confiscate it like they did with my Rufus Wainwright CD (can you say "Gay Messiah"?) AND I'd like to save the wasted postage. I'd be glad to pay extra, but the form here:

https://www.workingforchange.com/Order/index.cfm?OrderFormID=4&mktcode=crashingthegate

does not have any fields for those of us who live abroad, unless you are in APO or FPO. Never heard of those countries. I must be from the USA.

Hello! It is so blue out here, you'd think it was Canada! Let us buy the book and cut out the middle parents! Update: Working Assets says they are working on getting the website able to accept foreign orders! See below...

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

So come on!  There is a world beyond the borders of America. Ya'll been hanging round that Bush dud too long. Surely you are not incurious!

      Hey Markus, thanks for the response. I don't think I generated enough comments to get Markos to notice.

      Hopefully they'll fix the script so those of us in Japan, Sweden or whatever, can buy it easily.

      How can we get his attention???

      HEY! Yo! OVER HERE ASSHOLE! Fix the purchase site. DID YOU HEAR ME! YOU MF....

      Sorry, was that too loud?
