I am a graphic artist and an author who finds it pretty hard to type with a cat on her keyboard.
They are not choking good literature. The publishing industry is changing. Those of us that are publishers and authors have known it was changing for more than five years. Poor B&N. The authors can now sell their books online themselves if they want to. You know that 20 dollar book you bought at B&N? The author probably made 2 bucks or less on it after everyone else got their cut. B&N gets a 55% or better discount off retail. Then the distributor gets a cut, the publisher gets a cut. The publisher keeps money back out of the sale in case B&N decides to return for full refund (and book stores wont’ carry books without that guarentee). By the time it’s said and done, the author is working for less than minimum wage. You want a printed book, great. Go to the author’s website and order one. Give them 100% of the royalties. Don’t waste your tears on commercial bookstores. Mourn the fact that a lot of communities don’t’ have LIBRARIES or if they do, they have very poor libraries that are the first things to get their budgets cut.
oh come on. Parent teacher conference at daycare for a baby THAT young? Get real. that doesn’t happen, and if some where it is, it shouldn’t. What are they going to talk about? How well the baby wets his diaper?
Yup, got that song running through my head too. grumble. Good strip today.
Yay! So glad you’re feeling better and back home. Take your time, Aaron. Don’t push yourself to get back to work, we’ll be here when you’re up to it. Just rest, continue to get better and let us know what you need. We’re here for you. And hug Selina a lot, she’s a wonderful person.
Just an FYI, but Tea tree oil has proven extremely effective at treating MRSA and most other sorts of infections.
Has to be used externally, but it works very well. We’ve even used it to treat brown recluse bites with excellent results.
you might mention it to Aaron.
thanks for the update Selina. Will be checking every day here to see how Aaron’s doing.
Give him all our best and tell him we’re pulling for him, please.
Oh dear, posted before I read the updates.
Aaron, get well.
All readers, kindly send him a DONATION!
Yeah, I mean you. I have and will again. He gives us an incredible amount of himself and never asks for any payment.
now, it’s time for us to give back to him.
even just a little will mean quite a bit.
If everyone sent in 10 bucks can you imagine how much medicine or food he could buy?
Give back, guys.
:( I hope this doesn’t mean Aaron’s badly ill again. I hope he’s just on vacation or busy with something else.
ugh. hate this particular arc, especially since the diet advice being forced down our throat is incorrect. you want LESS grains and grain products, if you want to lose weight, not more. Grains and grain products turn into sugar and spike your blood sugar. You want healthy fats (not cooking oil and nothing man made) and proteins.
>This is DRAMA and very good too.
This is lousy drama and THIS is a comic strip that’s supposed to be light hearted and funny. I do NOT read this strip for soap opera drama.
