League of Unsuspecting Neighbors
I was on the treadmill at the gym the other day rolling my eyeballs at CNN Headline news when a piece came on about the guy in St.Louis who kidnapped the two kids. Because none of the principals were available for an interview, the reporter ended up interviewing neighbors. It struck me as a quintessential american phenomena, the unsuspecting neighbor. These people need a support group, or at the very least and online chat room. This might also be expanded to include neighbors of grow houses.
FineToons: The Art of Vermont Cartoonists
I don't know what it is about Vermont, (perhaps the drinking water) but it is or has been the the home to many fine cartoonists. Later this month, The Helen Day Art Center  in Stowe, VT will host a show of the work of Vermont cartoonsts, Including New Yorker cartoonists Ed Koren and Harry Bliss, Batman reinterpreter Frank Miller, and editorial cartoonist Jeff Danziger. The show is curated by Idoline Duke who found cartoonsits that I didn't even know lived here. Should be a good one.
