Where can one find a 6502 programming book these days?  I took VAX assembly 
in college and did rather well in it, I need to write one Atari game and 
put out one 7" single, and since the songwritings not going so well maybe I 
should shift my focus.  But where to start?

First of all, I wouldn't let your coworkers get you
down.  They've probably never even written anything in
assembly language, I'm guessing.  As long as you have
an understanding of binary operations and 2s
complement number representation, I don't think it
should be too hard for anyone.  In some ways it might
even be easier since every operation is so atomic and
well defined.  Personally I think learning 6502
assembly is relatively easy compared to learning the
VCS architecture and *how* exactly, to use that 6502
assembly to program the VCS. :)
