Re: Pictures of you

It's a great likeness of me! And it commemorates the last time someone found physical labor for me that was within my competence: Shovel it into the wheelbarrow and dump it where I'm told. It's the "where I'm told" part that made it productive. https://www.uuclr.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/playgr...

Re: Books Thread

This might be the best graphic novel I've ever read. I can't think of a better one. I didn't realize it was set in a lightly-disguised early-sixties Birmingham, Alabama. I probably should have. I can't recommend it too strongly--you should get a copy. Or two. https://compote.slate.com/images/77df84...
