what I'm working on today: a Christmas present for the vet who saved my dog's life

Lucia and I came up with a short story that I'm designing as a single page comic for Dr. Katz of Amherst, MA. Earlier this year he saved our dog's life. Here's to good vets, loving animals, and loving people. Happy Holidays everyone!

"Cat, Dog, Stoop" Holiday Episode!

Cat is visited by the ghost of Frank Capra and is shown what Fort Greene, Brooklyn would be like if he didn't exist. He wouldn't have talked to Melaena, the Real estate cockroach voiced by Melaena Cadiz, about Naomi Klein's Shock Doctrine. He wouldn't have made an impression on Francis or Dusty either. And what would have happened to Dog? We, the viewers, experience it all through Cat's eyes thanks to the king of Cinema, Mr. Capra. Enjoy!

Lucia interviewed on Democracy Now! this morning

My wife, Lucia, is the first interviewee on this morning's Democracy Now! show hosted by Amy Goodman. She's reporting from Cancun, Mexico, the location of this year's UN climate change conference, the COP 16. Lucia talks about Liu Xiaobo receiving the Nobel Peace prize and about her upcoming article in The Nation that explains the evolution of the relationship between the US and China regarding their environmental policies. I was with Lucia in Cancun for four days of the COP and, like I always am when I witness her do her work, I was so proud and impressed. Go Lucia!
