  1. So I am lying half comatose on the couch after 4 days of fever and coughing and a diagnosis of pneumonia when Susan calls and asks me to crank out a cartoon for you all. I think I was on a bit too much codeine cough syrup, but fate and codeine are a strange mistress (I really have no idea what that means but I think I read it on the wall of the Poe house). Looking forward to the meeting, Ed

  3. Well done on another one Ed.
    That codeine is pretty strong stuff, by the looks of things.

  4. Dear Friends,

    Dana and I went to a truly fantastic play at Center Stage called “Snow Falling on Cedars”. This is a two act play adaptation of David Guterson’s novel that I believe many of you read. Firstly, I believe it is a great play and Dana and I enjoy live performances. Secondly, it deals with “the other side of the coin” in its comparison to “Unbreakable”. The story deals with a small community of Japanese in the Pacific Northwest (near Bellingham, Washington) victimized by the bigotry and xenophobia this country experienced after Pearl Harbor. It deals with Japanese internment camps and our miserable treatment of US citizens. It is a murder mystery, trial drama, and love triangle that draws you into the conflict in those difficult times.

    I personally had very strong feelings regarding the Japanese after reading Unbroken and discussed some of them with my Father-in-Law. Seeing the other side certainly tempered my feelings. Bigotry and prejudice are wrong in any form, but the scary thing is how descent people can be drawn in. Just some food for thought, I think these two works are truly made to be discussed together. As an aside, “Snow Falling On Cedars” is also a movie released in 1999 (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120834/). I am getting it on Netflix…anybody interested in bringing some popcorn? Ed
