The wheels on the bus go round and round

On my way back from D.C. somehow I managed to snag a front-row seat on the top deck of our double-decker. I learned it's not that great of a seat: in the event of an accident, I'd be the first to go. But even worse, I had a bird's eye view of all sorts of bad and selfish driving by others -- I didn't want a camera, I wanted a laser gun.

Feeling the pinch

The New Yorker did a special triple cover for last week's themed "Money Issue." Readers of alternative comics should recognize one of the artists. It's also a bit of a throwback/homage to their covers of the 20's through the 40's when their covers often featured the pleasures and pursuits of the gentry class. Funny, no one in the media mentioned that they jacked up their cover price by a dollar (to $6 from $5) for this issue!
