Rall Sold Out

We're faintly fond of Ted Rall and his comics, mostly becausse he made the earlier parts of the Voice more readable, but also gives pointy alien ears to the Bush cabinet. A bit shrill, yes, but there's a lot to get agitated about in the way that the Bush adminstration behaves.

But, and we do need to point this out, he's a rather marginal figure on the left wing, and nowhere near as clever as This Modern World. Why, then, do the wingers get so exercised about him? Reminds us of this time they thought this obscure mumbling Colorado professor was going to bring down America...

For news of actually really good sick comics being oppressed, please note that the NY Press, continuing its descent into marginal literary 'zine, has dropped Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles, Neil Swaab's strip about a murderous paedophile teddy bear. Boo.

Woo! Bell Curve freaks in the house! Mind charting that against per capita education, and explaining to us what IQ actually says?
