Meet P. Barnes. The man. The legend.

This is from the county I live in.

If you're not reading "Phoebe and her Unicorn," you really need to start

Start here: http://www.gocomics.com/phoebe-and-her-unicorn/2017/07/19

My paper has been running this pretty much since it began, and it's an absolute delight. Artist Dana Simpson chronicles the adventures of Phoebe, a little girl who lives in the Pacific Northwest with her parents, an aging hippie father who works in IT and an artist mother. In the first week of strips, Phoebe accidentally hit a unicorn in the head with a rock. The unicorn, whose name is Marigold, grants Phoebe one wish. Phoebe wished for Marigold to be "her new best friend." Now Marigold is the straight man...well, straight unicorn...of the strip.

Some things I think you'll like...

* It is very well-drawn. There are features fifty years old that don't have the quality of draftsmanship Ms. Simpson displays.
* It's funny.
* The artist challenges you. A couple weeks ago, she ran a "camping trip" story arc in which we meet her best friend Max's parents. Max has lesbian parents.
* The dad isn't an idiot or an obnoxious oaf like almost all comic strip fathers are.
...oh, and Dana Simpson is transgendered.

There are worse decisions in sports than signing Tebow

It seems the Atlanta Falcons are spending a billion dollars to construct a new stadium. That stadium's concessions will include the famous Georgia restaurant Chick-fil-A. This restaurant, like all Chick-fil-A restaurants, will be closed on Sundays.

Which just happens to be the only day the Falcons are open.

The RWers pissed off the wrong people here...

The "Detroit Right Wings" and "Muskegon Minutemen" militias are using the Detroit Red Wings' logo in their Twitter feeds. The Red Wings are NOT pleased...and they have lawyers.

Now that Trump has declared the opioid epidemic a national emergency...

...we really need to know how he's going to profit from it. The First Underpants Gnome wouldn't cross the street unless there were a stack of $100 bills taped to the lamppost. He's running the White House as a profit center...so...what does he plan to get out of the deal, and how will he accomplish it?
