I happened across Piraro's blog after stopping into rec.arts.comic.strips (RACS). I love that he met Dennis and Elizabeth Kucinich.
Dan, if you ever come to Sioux Falls to visit yer Father-in-law and if you'd ever meet us fellow local cartoonists, for you I'd pass along my coveted "Wrist Strong" bracelet from Colbert Nation. (The rule is that you have to pass it to someone more famous ... then if they come across someone more famous than them... the cycle is to continue.) (About anyone is more famous than moi, but the fun is being selective .... and wondering where the bracelet might eventually wind up at if all recipients follow the Wrist Strong rule.)
