the only earth?

on MLK day in the South

Wonkette on MLK day ...
If you -- as reader J. did -- call the Mississippi tax commission today (601-923-7000), you'll find that the office is closed " in observance of Robert E Lee's and Martin Luther King's birthdays." [wonkette]

We're just glad that someone else celebrates the occasion by staying in bed until noon.

While I was cleaning my apartment this afternoon, I re-discovered this page-a-day calendar that I bought at a Mount Eerie show last year. It's made up of cartoons drawn by Phil Elverum and friends. Somehow I got the idea that it would be a great idea to post them all, in a page-a-day fashion at fancypeople2005.

(I think that this will be easier when flickr isn't being so troublesome about uploading slowness.)
