artists to my mind are the real architects of change, and not the political legislators who implement change after the fact. - William S. Burroughs

Drunk badger disrupts traffic
BERLIN (Reuters) – A badger in Germany got so drunk on over-ripe cherries it staggered into the middle of a road and refused to budge, police said on Wednesday. A motorist called police near the central town of Goslar to report a dead badger on a road -- only for officers to turn up and discover the animal alive and well, but drunk.

Eddie, do you still have the original of that? WSB is a personal favorite and you have really captured the likeness.

Rob,
alas, no. But I carried them around in my portfolio for a long time before I decided nobody was interested and gave them all away as a gift.

Fake.

I spent most of High School trying to figure up some clever nickname for writing / internet things. I found that like 98% of people in the world like The Catcher in The Rye.

Or atleast High Schoolers.

I've always wanted to meet a guy named Chance just at the moment when i'm opening a bar of chocolate, so that I can give Chance a piece.

The last makes me think of composer Lou Harrison speaking of his colleague John Cage's random composition methods, "I'd rather chance choice than choose chance."

Eddie Campbell, you are to be commended. This is the perfect Burroughs caricature. Just cartoony enough while having a realistic tinge.
