Innerview with Pablo Manreekez

(Pablo Manriquez, drawn by his sister) 
Pablo Manreekez says he's workin on an argument.  I for one don't see why anyone has to work to argue.  It seems to come natural to most folk, like breathing, and if you have to work for it, maybe you shouldn't be doing it. … Read full post »

I was going to write a post about what being part-Irish means to me, but then I realized that it doesn't mean much of anything.  All I can do is ramble and ramble about how there are all these cultural myths (and yes, I  have noticed this about other cultures, too) that… Read full post »
