I've been sitting at my computer continuously for the last two years. When I finally stood up, I was fat and broke. Had to get something out of it. Here's my new release. Hope you enjoy. And forward. I'm hoping for viral but I'll settle for measles.

Sometimes, if you really don't know how you feel about a topic, reading how both sides argue it can help. There is a deluge of heated rhetoric regarding the Arizona shooting tragedy. Emotions are high. Yet seeing how people make their cases can give one valuable insight as to who...

Here's the great Non-Sequitur cartoon most of you didn't see in your newspapers this past Sunday.

I've thought for the last decade or so, the only actual place raw truth was seeping through in newspapers was on the Comics Pages. They were able to pull off intelligent social comment,...
