    Drawing people is time consuming. Mr. Pastis wanted to go play golf.

    Tim Hawkins: “And the cat’s in the cradle and the silver spoon, and some other poetic…..stuff.” His abbreviated version of the song, which as I recall has the lyric “My son got mad because I worked all the time, he grew up to be a jerk, just like me.”

    Sadly Rat has made the perfect commentary on the cellphone/smartphone age. Though he did have one fatal flaw in his story, should have shown that the driver of the bus was too busy texting to see the idiot texting as he walked right out in front of the bus. I know laws are being enacted against texting while driving, but deaths caused by texting while driving are still occurring. And it would have been the utter irony of this idiots life to be killed while texting by a DWT.


    Ah, such a “fond” memory. Riding in a car down the street and seeing a couple of kids walking along side by side busy texting. They’d both occasionally glance over at the other kid then furiously start texting. Just by the actions you could tell they were texting each other. And all I could think at the time was how sad it was that they were right there and they couldn’t even take the time to talk to each other, they had to text. That must be close to six to eight years now. In the time since I’ve watched one of my sisters practically make her smartphone a body part, so busy spending time texting and doing whatever with it. I’m surprised she gets any sleep because I’ve had her by sleeping on the couch at night only to wake up every few minutes to check her texts and make replies. It’s not that important.
