Jobs trump public health and the environment, as usual in Kansas. Even though most of the power goes to Colorado, which is cutting back on coal plants within their state, we trumpet the benefit of some temporary construction jobs (often using out-of-state companies) and we become the outhouse of neighboring states. Textbook case of low self-esteem. "Go ahead and dump on me, I deserve it, in fact I welcome it."

But does rely on self-reference...it really is all about me, isn't it.
For extra credit, what's wrong with this image? Answer is below the toon. (And it's very inside so you probably won't know it.)
That's right. This is a drawing of Rhonda and Phil. Problem is, Phil has a beard now.
Sheesh. I can't keep up. (Oh, the other problem is: I don't office at the Eagle anymore, where they are.)

Last year my family and 3 of our ace musician friends did a Christmas music program at my church, Calvary United Methodist. Karen, Haley and I are joined by guitarist and mandolinist Dennis Hardin, bassist Phil Burress and violinist Rob Loren. Two other churches requested we do it for them and this year we're at it again.
This summer we recorded 13 of the songs on a cd which is available at Watermark Books and at Artworks Gallery in Picadilly Square. Or you can buy one from us directly (and we make a little more money that way!)
Our cd release party will be at Watermark on Saturday, December 18 from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
You'd be welcome at Calvary tomorrow night at 6:00, if you'd like to come listen. It's at 2525 N. Rock. It's free but the offering plate is passed.
Love to see you there!
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Perry Como rocks. Ok..."rocks" isn't exactly the right word but you know what I mean. My last KMUW commentary was about Perry should you wish to hear it, go here.
This was our only Christmas album when I was little. It still gets played in my house every Christmas.

Just lining up an appearance by me at the Kansas Cosmosphere. They have an exhibit opening on Feb. 12 about Snoopy and the space program and they asked it I would come and give a cartooning presentation. I love Peanuts and jumped at the chance. Plus I love space. Outer space and innner space. So I'll post more later as we get closer to the event. Being a spacey cartoonist does sometimes have its perks!
