*I SURVIVED TO TELL THE TALE…
..of the visit of my olde Salem State College roommate, John R. Cullinan. Pedal was put to the metal as we burned through 6 daze of pretending to be in school again. Visits to Venice Beach, the Craig Ferguson show (featuring Doc Ock!!), and Stupor Bowl foolishness.
On top of it all, John got on the Price is Right, came on down and won some stuff!! I won’t tell you what cuz you’ll have to watch March 13th. But look for the scrawny, obnoxious Bostonian hugging the Korean lady.
I thank my wife and child for putting up with it.
*KNIGHT LIFE COMIC NOW IN THE S.F. CHRONICLE!!
Finally!! You voted it in and now they’ve added it!! My daily comic is part of the roster in the Chronicle. Along with (th)ink every Thursday in their 96 Hours supplement. Now all they need to add is the K Chronicles…(Ha!!)
Thanks to Dave Weigand at the Chron for adding me. Please write to them and let them know how much you appreciate the add.
*LETTERS/EMAILS OF THE WEEK…
I just discovered your cartoons- I know, I know- what planet have I been on : )
Your cartoons are some of he funniest works I have seen in a long time. My favorite so far has been the trip to Germany. The box in the cartoon shows your little nephew with arms outstretched and covered in vomit saying “give me a hug” in German. LOL LOL LOL LOL!!!!!
Thanks for the laughs, but also for making social observations too. Thanks again and Best regards,
I was surprised and delighted to open today’s San Francisco Chronicle and
find your strip, “The Knight Life”. Last year when the paper offered up
several strips to be included, based upon readers of the paper’s opinions, I voted
for your strip, but (TH)INK was all they would add.
I hope your syndication is very successful, since you have one of the
“edgiest” strips out there, including Darrin Bell’s “Candorville”.
I have been a fan of yours since first finding your work in the “Pacific
Sun” years ago. It was stupid of them to drop your strip, since that was the
primary reason I always looked for it.
I met you when you appeared in Santa Rosa with other cartoon artists at the
Charles Schulz museum and purchased several books available then, which I still
enjoy today. Keep up the good work and much success to you and your German
bride. Get rich and keep the humor coming!

I wanted to write and thank you for your cartoons.I read them in the Funny Times.Your comics are clever,thought provoking,positive,and above all – funny! While many other cartoons demonstrate a rather narrow view of the world,or seem to have an axe to grind, yours are refreshingly broad in their topics and at the same time genuinely hilarious.

*LITTLE VICTORY OF THE WEEK…
I meant to write this up a long time ago. Sorry I took so long.
About a year ago, my (live-in) fiancé went clothes shopping for me at the
local thrift shop. I love that she finds things at the thrift shop, but you
know how it is when they buy you clothes that you don’t ask for. As
expected, I’m not especially fond of any of the clothes (but have to act as
if I am), and hope that they will all somehow just disappear. In
particular, was a pair of black boxer shorts with yellow smiley faces all
over it. There was no way I was going to wear those things, even though
they were in great shape, and fit just fine.
Then I saw an old Funny Times (from ~2006 0r 2007) on the table that a
friend had recently given me. I looked at The K Chronicles (one of my
favorites, of course), and immediately noticed that your character was
wearing identical boxer shorts in the comic strip! I immediately found the
shorts hilarious and classy, and ran to put them on, and give Julie a big
thanks for the clothes!
I’m wearing the shorts now.
(saving the world, one couple at a time!!-kk)
