A short(ish) break

We at Throbgoblins International will be taking a short break of a few weeks or so. We're busy packing our worldly goods into boxes and moving house, in an effort to transfer an ever larger proportion of our wages directly into the holiday budgets of hard-pressed absentee landlords. We like to do our bit. Thus we don't have time to indulge in our usual obsessive cartoonery. Instead, we will be spending all our after-work hours getting increasingly annoyed by the amount of crap we have accumulated, and the amount of books we haven't read yet. I'm sure you'll both manage. See you sometime in June.

Meanwhile, here are some links

I don't know if I can hold out that long.

Ditto (just kidding). Good luck with the sortage and moving. Break is a good idea, I think ...

Ah, see, more than two of us!! If we don't comment it's because you routinely hit the nail so squarely on the head that there's not much more to say.

i have used a few of your cartoons in my blog (http://whoami-whoareyou.blogspot.com/2009/05/fierce-urgency-of-now.html), i hope this is ok, seemed like it would be but in case not, let me know, be well.

I miss your mordant/trenchant (sorry, shouldn't indulge) comments but hope you are enjoying the break. Lots of tohu bohu as US tries to keep some gristle in the largely chewed over remnants of the Waxman-Markey Bill, and Hansen gets the headlines (info over at DotEarth). Denialists keep upgrading their techniques; no sooner do I say something than they find a way to turn it inside out.

Actually, the reason I'm bothering you is because the UK violence thing came up again recently and it reminded me of here. I believe it's as bad in the US, it's just that the press does not have a tradition of moving outside the sound byte of the day.
