*EGADS!! I HAVEN’T POSTED IN A WHILE…
We’re gonna be in Boston for an indefinite amount of time. I’m really gonna be testing whether I can do my comics from anywhere.
Thanks for all the good vibes folks have been sending me re: my sick Uncle. He’s a rock-star and I only wish everybody had someone like him in their lives.
*DECATUR WAS A BLAST..
The book fest down south was all that and a piece of ham!! I did my slideshow in City Hall in the chamber where the mayor of Decatur and the city council have their meetings. It was excellent!!
Decatur is like a little Berkeley or Harvard Square of Atlanta. I suggest you check it out if yer ever down there.
*JUST ADDED: NEW BOOKSIGNING IN BOSTON!!
I’ll be doing another signing in the Boston area at Million Year Picnic, Mt. Auburn St. near JFK in Harvard Square on Weds. Sept. 16th, from 4pm-7pm. With a trip to the pub following.
*NOT SURE IF I’LL BE DOING THE EVENTS I’M SCHEDULED FOR IN L.A. AND VEGAS..
..stay tuned and I’ll let you know by the middle of next week…
*EMAILS/LETTERS OF THE WEEK…
One of the things that has kept me reading *The K Chronicles* and *The
Knight Life* (other than the trenchant humor and incisive sociopolitical
wit) is your portrayal of family dynamics–much more realistic than *For
Better or Worse*. Your story of your Uncle Gene still makes me tear up
anytime I read it. (I saved it as an example of a truly great cartoon.)
Your ill uncle is in our prayers. God be with you and the family.

I’m so glad you were at the Decatur Book Festival.
My colleagues kept after to me to “go down to the McSweeney booth, go down to the
I bought a copy of I Left My Arse in San Francisco and I am enjoying it thoroughly.
I was working two booths down at the University of Georgia Press booth. Wish I had been
able to converse but the woman in front of me when I was making my purchase was going on
and on with a cellphone conversation while filling out an application for a subscription
so I just moved on.
Went to the doc the following Tuesday, took the book to help pass the time, and the nurse
saw the cover and said “ooooooo, that’s funny.”
Best of luck.
Thanks for all the good work you do.

Was flipping through the September edition of Funny Times, which ran your lovely cartoon about your life entwined with Michael Jackson. It’s the sweetest thing I’ve read since he died. I mourn with you.
