Big Nate by Lincoln Peirce for March 16, 2001
"You keep telling me to throw this stuff away, Francis, but forget it! This is a written record of my life." "Van Gogh had his letters, Da Vinci had his diaries... and I've got the contents of my locker." "Years from now when I'm famous, historians will be clamoring to see this stuff! To see what it reveals about Nate Wright, the man." "There once was a girl from Pawtucket." "See? that's my poetic introverted side!"
