How are they similar? They are both stars on Showtime's hit cable series 'Weeds' and the only two characters to play themselves. Something else in common: trouble with the law. (Video available.)

This new uprising is appearing in books and articles across the globe boldly challenging old dogmas about design, giving new-founded credence to intelligent structuring in the most unsuspected areas. The newly-released book from iUniverse Publishers, 'Paradox, The Rejected Cornerstone,' by Jane Weir embarks on an eye-opening journey into the obscure realm of paradoxes and proves that instead of mysticism and contradiction these ubiquitous equations, ironically, reveal a secret inner and higher form of order-specifically, the long sought after and ever-elusive universal blueprint.
