Midterms -- Cartoon from the Past

Way back in my college days, the musical "Cats" came out. The song "Memory" was sung by my favorite crooner -- whose music was still on the current airwaves at that time.

Music videos were coming about, and I figured a Music Comic Strip in parody form was in order to cut the stress. (I submitted comic strips to my college newspaper at the time.)

Sitting opposite side of the desk, I find midterm and end of term still stressful and time consuming! Thus my light posting during the back to school and build up of reports.

... and I apologize half heartedly to any Ronald Reagan fans, but with the market fallout, etc., it just seems this panel fits today.

Willie Nelson, Comic Books, and Protecting Your Vote

I will admittedly share that I am really huge on the right to vote and I take my own kids to events and to the polls when I vote. It's a sacred right, no matter the party.

It sends chills down my spine when I read or hear about caging of votes ... and I'm delighted there's a movement to prevent it and a COMIC BOOK to inform. It tickles me that Willie Nelson appears in this too. (My folks were Willie fans, and we had a Willie Nelson/Barry Manilow -- which is better rivalry going on... but that's another story.)

Scott McCloud, who spoke at the WHS ComicCon a few years ago, was the cartoonist for a Web Comic introducting/training/teaching over Google's new "Chrome" browser.
