Return to sender

While the Chicago Bears were somehow staging an improbable, offense-less rally to win on Monday Night Football, I was wrapping up hours of work on the index for the Red Faber biography.

The index -- with 720 entries containing thousands of page citations -- was e-mailed to my publisher a few minutes after the Cardinals place-kicker missed what probably would have been the game-winning field goal.

I hope that, during that distraction, I didn't inadvertently add a Brian Urlacher entry.

Six days ago, I shipped back the page proofs to McFarland, publisher of the biography. Now, the waiting game resumes.

I still have reason to believe that the book will be released in November.
