Garfield, not FinComm

Several friends have told me that as they read this blog, when they see Finance Committee, the press delete. I’m fine with that – I know it’s not for everyone. I also have people who tell me that they rely on my FinComm and Town Meeting notes. Many of them couldn’t care less (or just don’t want to know) about the other content I find interesting. I have adopted a plan to manage these divergent expectations. Every time I post a dry Arlington-specific article, I’ll also make sure I post a non-Arlington article.

It’s all about getting as many RSS readers as possible, right? Isn’t that what everyone wants? Please don’t answer that.

So, tonight’s non-Arlington content: “Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolor disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life? Friends, meet Jon Arbuckle. Let’s laugh and learn with him on a journey deep into the tortured mind of an isolated young everyman as he fights a losing battle against lonliness in a quiet American suburb.” A brilliant comic. Check it out.
