blunt are you listening?
Yes, I was listening.
I immediately wrote minicat at the address provided and asked for more info.
I was ignored!
Unless some horrible accident has befallen minicat.
I stumbled from my home, weeping, once again rejected by society, and stumbled across a copy of The Wisconsinite.
My first thought: how could they do it without me?
Second thought: badly.
They could really use an art director.
The whole paper is done in exactly the same font, body and headings.
Actually, it looks like an old copy of The Insurgent with movie reviews added.
(Again: I write, edit, and am a graphic design geek.....hello?)
The majority of articles lean left (so do I, but let's not fall over...) and really aren't all that earth- or mind-shattering.
Ben Granby's front line report on Baghdad was droll and fascinating.
Someone named Charles Schick wrote an intelligent bit on Wisconsin's Progressive tradition but leaves an email address as firstname.lastname@example.org.
(So waddup? Is that your schtick, Chuck_Schick? And if so is the byline or email misspelled?)
Panel cartoons by InfiniteJest.org (Just like the Onion. Only bitter.) are amusing and look exactly like Tom Tomorrow's stuff.
I like the style of Mall Goths cartoon.
They are still trying to find their voice.
It's not quite good enough to read in the bathroom yet.
I'd be glad to help, but they continue to ignore my query.
Maybe they're just badly hurt in a freak newspaper accident and they're unable to email me back.
That's probably it.
