Hiya folks! Sorry I left you all hanging there for a few weeks, but good ‘ol crappy, miserable “real life" has been doing a number on your friendly neighborhood Blogger-Man. I’m going to be out of a job at the end of May, so I’ve been polishing up the old resume and casting it about the job sites hoping to scare up a new job, but no dice so far. I’ve also been on the receiving end of some swell verbal abuse from my own father, who has disowned me for my (lefty-but-not-especially-radical) political views. He’s one of these delightful “Tea Party” fellows you’ve been hearing about, and he recently took it upon himself to scream at me and declare our relationship “forever changed” for not following in his right-wing footsteps! Imagine what he would have said if I’d gotten a word in edgewise! Not that I’ve ever tried to change his mind; all I’ve really wanted from him was for him to come over, be nice, and play with his grandson, but apparently, having a mind of my own is a bridge too far. If you think you’ve heard too much about the Tea Party, try being lectured about Libertarianism for over twenty years. BUT… problem solved! Because we're no longer talking.
ANYWAY, all of this turmoil has been pretty stressful and depressing, and not too conducive to writing wacky articles about “Matter-Eater Lad”. Happily, my real family – my wife and son- are here for me, and she told me to get back to my blog, so here I am. I’m not done with comics, by any means. I still read ‘em, and I still want to talk about ‘em, and I will be, SOON. I just hope you're still with me, gentle reader... it wouldn't be the same without you!
