"There's no doubt in my mind that maybe two years from now or five years from now or ten years from now, we are going to find out what we know intuitively, that thimerosal, the mercury in the vaccines, absolutely causes autism and other learning disabilities." -- Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.

"Keeping your body healthy is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos - the trees, the clouds, everything."

-Adelle Davis

"The body, simply put, can heal itself of nearly all chronic degenerative diseases or conditions in much the same way it heals a cut or a sprain. The human body is a self-repairing system, after all. What you have to do is give it the right nutritional tools so it can unleash its fullest healing potential. And that comes from natural medicines found in the world of nutrition."
-Mike Adams

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship."

Even Leonardo Started Somewhere

Noah's teacher's comment on his report card about his artwork expressed concern that he only draws stick figures, and doesn't put a lot of detail into his art.

Well, given that his main form of art and literature intake is in the form of various comic strips and books, I guess I'm not surprised that he draws only stick figures. Fine motor skills have never been his strong suit.

But just because it's a stick figure, I don't think it means that detail is lacking.

Get a load of the expression on the face of the guy in the barber's chair in the last frame of this strip Noah drew in October:

I say, if he can do that with a stick figure, let 'im do it.

After all, some cartoonists have made their entire living drawing no better than a "rabid squirrel addicted to cocaine", as I heard Scott Adams quote a critic once.

If only he would write a little neater (no interpretation required), he may really have something going, here...
