The artist behind the Flash, Star Wars, Adam Strange

Here's an interview with comics great Carmine Infantino, a former teacher of mine (really!) and a wonderful artist. I still love his work on Marvel's Star Wars adaptions (with Gene Day inking). He of course also had the great runs on Adam Strange and the Flash.

Health care stories

Health care horror stories collected by a blogger at The Atlantic. The system is in serious need of reform. Hopefully the Obama administration gets it, and doesn't just give in to the insurance companies like they did with the drug companies.

Pencils review?

I recently purchased some Pencils at Staples. Specifically, Staples(R) number 2, Yellow pencils, Dozen. A few days later, Staples sent me an e-mail, thanking me for my purchase of said pencils, maybe I'd be interested in some pink erasers (as if they foresee many mistakes ahead...)? They also wondered if I would care to write a review -- I can even check off such things as "Easy to sharpen" and "Great lead capacity" (what?!).
