A Belated Weekend Roundup

 

Right-wing forces are still ignoring facts and promoting divisiveness. Liberals are still gutless. Religion is still the greatest threat to peace and self-expression. … The only big difference is that I am now old. My sense of outrage at the stupidity and cruelty of those in power remains the same, but my desire to do anything about it has atrophied.

Edward Sorel doesn’t hold back in this Steven Heller interview.

It matters to me that The Nation now has an editor who is oblivious to the opportunity that the magazine has to be the repository for daring political art, as the old The Masses was. But personally it is of no consequence.

 

 

An all-new original 6-page story was commissioned to be featured on this roll of actual usable toilet paper. It’s credited only to Jim Salicrup and Michael Higgins on the item itself, but those in the know indicate that Marie Severin produced most of the art.

The Russian Embassy in Paris on Thursday had posted a picture depicting a body lying on a table called “Europe” with characters representing the United States and European Union jabbing needles into it.

Mark and I miraculously managed to get a development deal from the biggest and oldest syndicate. A development deal is usually given to a creator who shows promise, but whose strip needs some fine tuning.

Needless to say, Mark and I were thrilled.

One night, almost 50 years ago, Tim Eagan fell off a building.

The conceit behind “Head First,” a finished book that Eagan is planning to publish in the summer, has to do with the strange psychological elongation of time that often happens in times of trauma. The book begins with a man falling from a building, which happens somewhere around Page 8. The next 90 or so pages chronicle what happens in the few seconds it takes him to hit the ground. But it happens in subconscious time…
