The Egoist In Me

I'm 44, married, childfree, and I live in Southern California. Foodie, technophile, bibliophile, independent voter, wannabe-deep thinker, amateur gourmet, beer enthusiast, tumblr (re)blogger, and pc gamer. I'm a very sarcastic, cynical, and optimistic person. I work, I go to school, I play computer games, I read, I listen to music. That's my life in a nutshell. Everything else is just decoration.

-We are made of stars. I love the cosmos, therefore I love me.

It’s still National Library Week. You should be especially nice to a librarian today, or tomorrow. Sometime this week, anyway. Probably the librarians would like tea. Or chocolates. Or a reliable source of funding.

URGENT : Last night, we told the IRS: new rules governing dark money need new data to work — and transparency is the only solution. Today is the last day the IRS will accept public comments on a rule proposal that could finally regulate political nonprofits, and stem the flow of dark money in our elections.  Read our proposal, then click HERE to tell the IRS, “I stand with the Center for Responsive Politics in their request for transparency. The IRS has a chance to make clear, fair, and enforceable rules for tax-exempt organizations to stem the flow of dark money in U.S. elections, and allow citizens to access information they deserve: http://bit.ly/1mI8uts.”

Thank you for taking a stand for transparency!

This is my comic Blame. It’s taken me a VERY long time to create this (mentally not physically. Physically it only took me a little over a week to draw).
