Pac-10 officials

drew0920toon.gif

How about those Pac-10 officials completely blowing the OU-Oregon game over the weekend. With the obvious on instant replay even. I know the action happens fast, but there really is no excuse for that whole mess.

OK...The debut of Aaron Sorkin's Studio 60 was every bit as good as I thought it would be. The pacing was terrific, the acting excellent and the writing top-notch. It's going to be great.

Still getting used to the digs here at the News. Funny how a change of scenery can make the creative process so much different. By the way, if you want to see a great insight into how cartoonists work, check out the web site for better for worse by Lynn Johnston. It's a frame-by-frame breakdown into what it takes to create a daily strip. The process isn't that much different than mine except I don't have assistants helping me draw. Check it out.

    I think this goes beyond missing a call. That one was pretty obvious. Makes you wonder what they're doing out there on the west coast.

    Refs are blind! Genius! Drew strikes again! What's your next comic, calling a pitcher a bellyitcher? Are you letting your kids come up with the ideas now or have you completely checked out?

    I'd like to see how you do with a short deadline Mike. Thinking up a concept, drawing it, revising it, and then finalizing the drawing by midnight or whatever each day. I'm sure you won't be such a smart--- then. There's a reason why Drew does this for a living and uhh...you don't.

    Mike...this goes beyond refs being blind. The replay official missed the call as well. If you don't like it don't read it and don't post about it. I love how these "experts" on message boards always gripe about an article or a comic, yet you don't see them getting anything published.

    How do you know I don't have anything published? As Drew is showing us, if he can do it any fifth-grader can.

    So, if I use addition and subtraction at my job, a fifth grader should be able to do my job then?

    if you're adding 2+2 (which is the equivilent of what Drew is doing in this cartoon), then yes a fifth grader could do your job.

    Beating on a dead horse here...adding 2+2 is part of my job, but so is differential calculus. I guess you're right, a fifth grader could do my job or have a nationally published comic.
