I have decided to switch to tumblr because I like it better! Therefore this blog is now old and my new blog is here: http://daleberan.tumblr.com/
A new Time Picnickers page is up this week. And another should go up by the end of the month. My first Occupy Comic is in Occupy Comix #1. You can read the issue free here.

Ted also has a good article about generation Y (Is that really what we’re called?) here.

I’m sure it’s up there, and of course gas isn’t all that cheap, and well, there’s the financing plan which is like another 5-10% on 20-25K. But it’ll be monthly payments and at least all your friends will know you’re cool now cause you have that sort of enormous truck that GM swore they would stop making when the government bailed them out of bankruptcy a few years ago because the things proved intensely hated and unpopu– Whooops….
At least last time they tried this, America was rich, the auto reigned supreme, and they were clearly high:
