The Daily Grind: Adiós

It has been a wonderful couple of months for me and my chainsmoking rabbit. Reader response to "The Daily Grind" was better than I expected or could have hoped for, especially here at Portland Indymedia, easily the most active and vital IMC in the network. Unfortunately, I've recently run out of time to devote proper attention to the strip. Although I'll continute donating occasional items of interest to the newswire, Jacob and Lazlo must bid you all a fond adieu.

As for what the coming months have in store for us, if Bush's press conference last night was any indication, expect a spectacular meltdown. An administration this blatantly corrupt is just plain bad PR for an amoral power structure that's usually quieter about its amorality, so I have every expectation that Dubya and Co. will soon be consigned to the dustbin of American political history. But what next? John Kerry? Pffft...

It really is up to us, folks.

in solidarity,
