Pens the comic strips Sally Forth and Medium Large. Writes for The Onion News Network. Serves as head writer for the PBS series SeeMore's Playhouse (for which his script won two regional Emmys). Was afraid of the color yellow until about age nine. Tans a little too well to be trusted by security.
A simple grilled cheese sandwich. Something that can be procured anywhere at any time. Nothing too exciting, right?
But what if I put a little butter on the bread before I grilled that sandwich? That would add a little extra zing, right? And what if instead of using plain old American cheese I opted for something a tad more exotic, like Camembert, Stilton or Roquefort? Now we're talking, right?
And what if instead of using bread for my grilled cheese sandwich I used two large blocks of pure platinum? And what if instead of eating the platinum I sold it and then used that small fortune as venture capital for a Beijing-based conglomerate that could take advantage of Chinese local business incentives, cheap labor, lax environmental laws and surging global interest in the fastest-growing economy in the world, thereby ensuring returns in the billions of dollars even in the face of a collapsing U.S. dollar and a massive industrial shift from the technical to service business sector? Wouldn't that be nice?
That's exactly what Francesco Explains It All is. In an endless buffet of indistinguishable tastes, it's the grilled platinum Stilton cheese sandwich that could forever destabilize geoeconomics. Care for a bite?
I was kind of hoping it was a big flaming meteor that will crash and wipe out the entire town in one fell swoop, resulting in a week of nothing but blacked out strips as we wait for the ash to settle ...
Ah, but perhaps it's medication time.
I'm just happy to see the return of Aria. I was starting to worry that she might have disappeared. I also cannot wait until the inevitable affair she and Ted will have.
Does Aria have a cousin who just showed up in Crankshaft?
I loved the dialog in today's Sally Forth. Understated and just-right-funny.
No one here?? Did you get an appointment in the new administration? Are your people talking to their people? Or did Sarah completely lose it and you're trying to talk her out of going 'home' to Alaska?
