I've had the goal of updating my website for quite some time now, but alas, I actually have gotten some work done on it now. Below are the home page and a basic template for the cartoons page. I think for the illustration and sketchbook pages I'll end up having thumbnails on the left and the larger image on the right. We'll see.

The FEMA budget should be one of the safest allotments in the federal budget. It should be. The Obama budget plan does put some cuts in FEMA during a year that has seen numerous calamities, natural disasters, and the like. However, any conservative that blasts this "irresponsible" plan must do one of three things:
1) admit that global warming is in some way affecting the frequency of strong weather occurrences and subsequently depleting FEMA's resources.
2) take a look at the other socially irresponsible budget cuts that they so adamantly cling to.
3) pull their heads out of their asses.

In recent weeks, the political landscape has been strewn with scandals involving lawmakers, a governor, even the French philanderer, Dominique Strauss-Kahn. While many of the acts of inappropriate behavior shouldn’t be advocated, one must wonder if it is at all appropriate for the matters to be discussed on a national level in a manner akin to one of those “donkey shows” in Tijuana that I keep hearing about. It is true that lewd behavior on the part of any politician reflects directly on his or her (but not really her) character. At the same time, however, the thought that our elected and appointed officials should be infallible is one of ignorance and naivety.
But why do they warrant so much of our attention? Former senator Larry Craig had us tapping our feet all the way to hysteria. We impeached Bill Clinton because of a blowjob. Sometimes I really wish these political leaders were afforded the same privacy that us regular folks hold so dear.
