What are the haps my friends

May 27th, 2008: Kate Beaton did a great comic about your friend and mine Joey Comeau of A Softer World. And then (then!) I noticed that somehow I'd missed that she'd done my request for her History Comics Project #2, which was "but I need those baskets back". Hooray! So it was a Katy-filled morning for me and now it is for you too!

One year ago today: as a bonus, 'life of crime' is included as an illustrative anecdote at the end of the book. STRAIGHT TO NUMBER ONE ON THE NEW YORK TIMES, BABY!
