And then there was this one
… which the right wing blogosphere did not appreciate, not one little bit. (From November 2003).
This is from later in the war, October 2007 to be exact. Ran across it looking for something else on my hard drive. I’d completely forgotten about this one; re-reading it made me laugh.
Another cartoon flashback
From September 11, 2002, six months before the war started.
This one inspired a protest song:

My brush with greatness
Twenty years ago, give or take, I went with my buddy Dave Eggers, who was publishing a local magazine called Might, to meet with Judd Winick, the young aspiring cartoonist in MTV’s Real World San Francisco. Eggers and I had a plan to stage a fake fight in front of the MTV cameras which we were both actually much too polite to follow through on, though we probably should have. At any rate, Judd tells me via Twitter (where you can follow him: @JuddWinick) that there’s going to be a Real World SF marathon on this weekend, and my three second cameo is in episode five. I probably look a bit younger.
The last letter
A message from a dying vet, to George Bush, Dick Cheney, et al.
Another blast from the past
While we’re in a reflective mood, here’s one from February 2002. Panels three and four remain disturbingly timely.

Note to Sparky’s Listers
If you’re on Gmail, you might want to add TMWsubscribersATgmailDOTcom to your contacts list. I think Google must have tightened up their filters recently — my own copy of the email ended up in my spam folder last week!
I’d also recommend creating a filter (under the MORE dropdown menu) and checking the NEVER SEND TO SPAM option.
If you do find Sparky’s List emails in your spam folder, please be sure to click the little “not spam” button at the top. Maybe if that happens enough times, the Google algorithms will adjust accordingly.
And if I have any loyal readers who happen to work at Google, please shoot me an email at tomtomorrow-at-gmail. Sparky’s List should not be getting flagged as spam for anybody –it’s a subscription list that people pay money to be on!
…adding: the List has gone out for this week.
