CSotD: Messaging

I expect there will be more cartoons about Trump’s bizarre rendition of the history of the US Army, but Clay Jones and Ed Hall are out front early, which is the only place to be on this one. For those of us who are self-employed, a “holiday” mostly means that we can work without phone […]

The Future of The Nib, Again

It was reported Friday that First Look Media made the decision to end funding for The Nib along with shuttering the web magazine Topic.com at the end of July. That is true and something that I’ve been dealing with the results of for a few weeks now. That leaves me writing yet another post on […]
