Priorities: A Snapshot


As much as people complain about the media, it is occasionally worth attending the self-inflicted wounds. To wit, Huffington Post readers:

• “These Will Be The Best Places To Live In America In 2100 A.D.”

So, yeah. Trending. According to HuffPo’s metrics, this is what people are reading and promoting.

Bug: A necessary correction


Recently I received a comment regarding a post from March about the comic strip Bug. Now, maybe there’s something wrong with my reading comprehension, or perhaps I ought to be embarrassed for not making certain things clear. However, the comment can be read in such a manner to suggest that its author thinks I have something to do with Adam Huber’s wonderful ‘toon. And to that possibility, I must offer a necessary correction: No, I don’t have a damn thing to do with the strip, except to read it and laugh my ass off.

And maybe I ought to be embarrassed for wasting the blogosphere in such a typical manner, though I’m sure it beats becoming a fanboy and making a pilgrimage to Mr. Huber’s home to scream with girlish delight every time I see a shadow pass the window.

Anyway, ’nuff said. I passed the compliment along to the Bug website, and in the meantime, maybe Mr. Huber won’t kill me if I post another, especially with the disclaimer that no, I did not draw this. But I do sympathize with the sentiment, if that counts for anything.
