Read Comic

Das Oldskoolen, Part 1

Two things to keep in mind when sampling today’s product:  one, I love Warlords.  It’s got these cool castles, and you have to kind of bounce these things.  Two: due to lack of sleep, poor diet, or some commingling of the two, dreaded Continuity has us at a disadvantage.  We will do our best to cast off its deleterious effects by Friday - but we promise nothing! 

I wrote a lot in this space for a very long time about Monday’s comic, and what I’m sure people thought were their erudite responses to it.  Then, as I was wrapping it up - that is to say, finishing it, not wrapping it as such - I received a fairly hum-drum bit of hate mail.  I initially included it on the page here, but I can’t recall why.  You may rest assured that it dealt largely with my homosexuality.

Then, as I deleted everything I’d written on the off chance that it might entertain him, it occurred to me:  What a bright-red bucket of fun this is.  I endeavored primarily to inform with my post, to lay out a variety of perspectives on the issue, with links to no less than three fairly robust discussions I thought would be more revealing than any I might pantomime here with you.  The main issue for me - the chilling effect that often accompanies these roving packs of rapacious lawyers, off the leash and on the prowl - came across as well as I could do it, i.e., I managed to incorporate both dogs and coats.  I marked the date on my calendar, appending a small note which read:  “Dogs/Coats, Wr. Jat Mips.”  The first part seems clear enough, and I’d say that “you just had to be there” re: the Jat Mips issue, except that I was there, and it still doesn’t make any fucking sense.     

I can’t seem to write anything at the moment.  Well, that’s not true.  I can’t seem to write anything I don’t delete immediately afterward.
