  1. I enjoyed the article about Chad Carpenter and Tundra. I found it interesting that the inspiration for drawing an Alaskan-themed comic came to him while in sunny Sarasota. Sometimes you have to get away from home to see what is funny and unique about it. I know that’s true for me. Has anyone else found that to be the case?

  2. Alan…Regarding my online chat with the Washington Post…

    The date you posted is wrong. The correct date is Friday February 29.

    Other than that, you have a pretty perfect site.
