My two favorite comic properties of all time (at least today) are Peanuts, as in Charles Schulz, and Sandman, as in Neil Gaiman. So when I saw this I could only count myself thankful I hadn’t been drinking any liquids at the moment. I discovered the link in Neil Gaiman’s journal; his only remark was “Good grief!”
Today is the real primary election day (as opposed to that stupid, pointless exercise Michigan had in January), and I voted before coming to work. They weren’t giving out gold stars (my precinct is in a middle school; I guess they only give gold stars in elementary school), but I still felt good because I got to vote for the zoo. A very tiny tax increase to support the Detroit Zoo, that is. I voted for some people too, I guess. Almost every race had exactly one candidate per party, the one exception being the state house of representatives where, somehow, we had seven choices on the Democratic side. I don’t know what’s worse, having exactly one choice, or having a bunch of choices you know nothing about. What’s worse is, the elections workers wouldn’t let me bring my dart board in so I could make a choice easily.
There are developments on the website front and decisions to be made. Watch this space.
