Just had a conversation that resulted in the conclusion that it is Impossible for any reporter to be as exciting at Lewis Kamb. FULL DISCLOSURE, several Kamb stories inspired several Tacomics past. For Example: Is the Mayor of Tacoma ethical? Yes, but now with an asterisk (*) see State of the City aux Tacomic; Is the Chief of Tacoma Police a dirty rotten liar? Yes. Do people who call the Chief on the lies face retaliation? Yes.  Do cops who lie get fired because it ruins their credibility? Yes. see Gaul Bramed Liars Tacomic.  Did most-likely-to-be-a-cartoonist, City Council appointee DAVID BOE violate ethics rules when he voted on the lousy Cheney Stadium revamp design?  NO, but this is really funny.  see Cheney Stadium Design Tacomic. Lewis Kamb is so awesome he even keeps tabs on the Clear Channel Billboard Holocaust... too many tacomics, waste of time to see them all. 
Lewis Kamb wins awards for god sakes! How many TNT reporters win awards? Did you know he used to work for the Seattle Post Intelligencer? My only constructive-criticism of Lewis Kamb is that he needs to tap into those pesky Homeland Security Council Meeting minutes.  There is liberal/libertarian newspaper outrage gold in there! Ian Demsky used to monitor the minutes, and man some freaky stuff (check out Ian's horrifying poems)

Nothing Tacomic-y to draw, RR? Do you need a fill-in? Maybe like the garbage collecting, you could go to every other week?

by NineInchNachos on 6/14/2011 @ 10:05am
Ha!

Oh I have a Tacomic... a series of unfortunate events has prevented me from uploading this morning, now that things are fixed I will have to wait till this evening to post.

the garbage topic is worthy of a Tacomic too!

Last week the FCC released a report which, at 360 pages, is one of the most comprehensive overviews of the US media ever produced. One key finding is that while media in general are diverse and vigorous, local reporting has taken a significant hit. Worst of all, neither old nor new media seem to have the resources to hold government accountable.

Lewis Kamb earning his paycheck...


"More than four months ago, the city’s top managers overseeing the Cheney Stadium renovation authorized work beyond the construction contract amount that had been approved by the City Council, records obtained by The News Tribune show."

POOR RICHARD EXPLAINS IT ALL:
*** secret origins of THE NOSE ***

MATT asks: "Would you object to us re-printing your Tacoma Action Figure comic of Lewis Kamb in tomorrow’s Nose column? Still toying with the idea. We were especially amused by his “culturally insensitive sidekick.” Although puzzled by 'no longer known as Hook-nose.' What does that mean?"

POOR RICHARD: "I would be OK with it if in exchange you can plug my webcomic and cartoon funny book on feedtacoma.com in the article. The humor joke with the NOSE was meant as a 'what if' like what if the NOSE was a comic-relief character developed in the 19th century yellow press by an evil racist industrialist say somebody like Henry Ford who was big into newspapers and bashing people of jewish descent ala The Dearborn Independent, a/k/a The Ford International Weekly BUT as newspapers became more self-aware decided to drop HOOK from THE HOOKNOSE and just call the character The NOSE. Kind of a conceptual inside joke that only I would think was funny. Hope that helps!"
