Hey dedicated kids who keep checking for new comics: I have a job! I’ll be moving this summer to a tenure track job in upstate New York. Anyway, I defend soon and then I have all the time in the world for…comics! Among other things, but definitely comics.

In the meantime, here’s something you can do to boost your karma. Last year, one of my friends broke his kneecap. What I should say is that someone put a post through a bike bridge–the one he bikes to work across at 4am–and he had a terrible wreck that laid him up pretty much all summer. (Bike Crash in Lincoln, NE)

Now, this summer, he has a chance to go to Barista Camp, but only if he wins a contest (or the lotto). I’m thinking that it would be nice if a bunch of strangers pitched in to send him somewhere nice for a long weekend. Kind of poetic justice. If this sounds like your kind of Chaotic Good, then go vote for him: Vote!
