many things make a post
a little behind...

up with figs, our hero

Once upon a time, Lisa and Adrienne worked for the same alternative newsweekly. Now, both spend their respective days mining their creative souls and leading hermit-like lives. And so an idea was hatched. Every week, one would send the other a sketch - either in illustration or word form - and the other would make a companion sketch. The result would be posted on both their blogs every week, just for grins. Even if the result isn't award-worthy, the exercise might make both minds more nimble. Hopefully.


They say that every generation gets the hero it needs.

Let me respectfully suggest that we could really stand Competence Man right about now. 

Competence Man could get any job done. Maybe not well done -- but adequately done. Nothing flashy, mind, just computer systems that work OK and governments that function.

He’d leap into his office, tear off his business suit, and reveal another business suit. On Fridays, it would be khakis and a sportscoat.

We’d all rest easy at night knowing that Competence Man was on the job.

His battle cry would be "Suck Less!"
