I'm going to be gone until either Wednesday or Thursday of next week, so I won't be able to blog until I get back. Until then, here are some links you can visit to pass the time.
Calvin and Hobbes - This is one of my all time favorite cartoon strips. Did you know Bill Watterson got his undergraduate degree in political science and that John Calvin and Thomas Hobbes served as the inspiration for the name of the strip?
Doonesbury - Another favorite. I've read nearly every strip in this toon's 35 year history.
Project Censored - This site lists the tops 25 stories of the previous year which did not make it past the buzzsaw of corporate press and into the focus of the mainstream media. As you look at these stories, consider the significance of the issues they raise while contrasting this to the vacuous and sensational "news" that dominates the mainstream media, e.g. Laci Peterson, Janet Jackson nipple slip, M. Jackson trial, run-away bride, shark attack, Demi and Ashton, etc
