Closure. That's what we as citizens of Tacoma are dealing with now that Russell Investment Group has made the decision to move into the cursed WAMU sky scraper up there in Seattle--Smell you later Tacoma! Like you, I've waited for the decision in a state of limbo, unsure of the direction to take in drawing the next F. Russell cartoon. The Tacoma News Tribune gives the Russell situation their best cartoon-less attempt at humor which is noteworthy for the glib reference to the over-sexed teenage girl killed-to-death at Fort Lewis from a drug overdose (friendly-fire).  Even so, I say change happens. Let us embrace our seedy underbelly with the INTERNATIONAL BAIL BONDS DISTRICT.  Financial services you can use in a pinch to get out of the pinch.

Is that a special tiny guest appearance by Ocryx and Joe?

Sad but true. Nice work, R.R. I really like this one.

Hahaha, I love it. I think "Slippery Pete's Bail Bonds" is my favorite, I can't say it out loud without laughing.

I dunno though, I'll bet we can land a deal like the one that drew Russell to the WaMu building, maybe find an awesome employer looking for a deal on a ton of class A. Here's hoping anyway....

I have hopes that we could have the vacated Fussell building as part of the International Cartoonists District. Perhaps CLAW can threaten to move to Seattle and the city of Tacoma will give you a bunch of tax breaks, parking, and sweet deals on real estate.

Bail Bonds are a booming business in downtown Tacoma.

Seattle can't those away from us. Let them try!

I have blue sky dreams for CLAW and the Knights of Pythias Temple.

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 9/15/2009 @ 12:46pm
If the Knights of Pythias thing doesn't work out I'm sure the Sons of Norway on MLK would be glad to welcome an Anderson.

I was just asking my wife the other day, "Which bail bond service would you prefer, Aladin or Bad Boys?"

Maybe Kevin could rent the top floor for the new Feed Tacoma world corporate headquarters...

But Saltchuck owns the building, right? Wouldn't surprise me if they moved more of their staff in there.

CLAW doesn't need tooooo much room.....

...unless we add in an aviary for our favorite two crows!

Liberty bailbonds made the "best of" weekly volcano. Something to consider when bailing your sweetheart out of the poke.

Well it's no bail bonds company...
