Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2001 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

John wrote me, asking: was he not getting the Paul Conrad cartoons because John is stupid, or because the cartoons are stupid? My answer: if incompetent editorial cartooning causes you to question your judgment, then the terrorists have won.
