Hello, John. It's Tuesday, January 9th. I'm in Detroit, Michigan. It's very windy and cold. I'm standing in the only place in the continental United States where you can look south and see Canada, which you are doing right now. I'm also standing in front of General Motors headquarters. It's a very, very big building.

It's really nice of you to say that I live in a way that is commensurate with my values. I haven't been feeling that way lately. For the new year I drove to Spokane and I flew to Reno and then I drove to Lake Tahoe. And then I did that all in reverse for, like, a three day long party. And now, like a week later, I've accepted an invitation from General Motors to visit the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan.

I was invited to this because I write for a few environmental blogs and there are some environmental things going on here. Those are my values. This is not my values.

It's kind of difficult to convey what's really going on here. It's a pretty gigantic spectacle. I looked earlier, there's fake lichen on those fake rocks. And up here, fake fire. I don't even know how they're doing that; it's amazing. And here we have the weirdest, prettiest fake waterfall ever and it spells things.

Right here, we have a Jeep that has got stuck to a wall, and all the people in that Jeep have had to jump out of the Jeep because they were stuck to a wall.

General Motors is giving away hot dogs to a long line of people.

So lame. Oh my god.

[Girls]: Hi John! Hey John! See what you're missing?
[Hank]: Ehhehehehehehehehehe, yeah.

As for the Brotherhood 2.0 book club, I'm really excited that you're giving me opportunities to read so many books about genocide. I love genocide. In terms of what you're going to read, apparently none of our viewers want you to read anything because they all want you to write. So you should just go ahead and read whatever it is you're writing. I'm gonna make that your one option. You have to read the book you are writing.

And as for what to call it, you're gonna have to give me some time. Also, it'd be nice to know what it was about. I'd also like to say happy birthday to Jessalyn Shields, a Brotherhood 2.0 viewer and one of my best friends.
