Top notch, sir. Kicking the dirt and hands in his pockets is very expressive.

thank you sir. Mike is one of my favorite people to draw.

I got lots of vintage mad magazine comic book artist books this Christmas. Someday I hope to be as awesome as them.

breaking news!!!

What's interesting about that article is that it involves making news out of something Hill never did in the first place. You know you've earned yourself something of a media spotlight when your getting written about even for the things you're not doing.

Maybe this could be a new media precedent for Hill coverage, a medium for positve reinforcement perhaps.

"This just in, Hill shows up for Tacoma School Board meeting without anything even resembling a weapon!"

"This just in! Hill attends, comments during, and departs a city council meeting without escort, incident, or police intervention!!!"

Maybe if Hill got as much attention for avoiding trouble with the law as he does for getting into trouble with the law he'd have new incentive to walk the straight and narrow. Certainly Hill is aware that he has something of a media entourage as well as fan club that follows Hill News. Perhaps if Hill got as much attention for exhibiting public behavior consistent with the law and social norms he might adjust his behavior accordingly and not get arrested or committed as much anymore. Huh, huh?

a commenter on the trib article made the point that though Robert Hill might not be running for auditor, Jesse Hill might be.

I also think the article is an optimistic one. Like reporting that nobody has been killed by a nuclear bomb today. Good news!
