King Features has just turned a hundred. It has been fantastic to be a King Features cartoonist for a mere 8% of its history. I’m grateful for the opportunity it has given me to share Arctic Circle with comics fans all over the world.
When I was a kid, I had a cat (“Tac”, a white cat who adopted us when we lived in Cornwall) and I adored it. It pained me every time she caught a bird, or mouse, or mole. Especially when she left the remains on the doormat. I lived in New Zealand and Australia for about a decade and didn’t have a cat there, but I saw how the native wildlife was no match for the cats. At least in Melbourne, cats had to be kept in at night, but in most places in the world they are free to roam and kill millions of birds and small animals.
(Bai is “yes” in Basque – one of the few words I’ve picked up…)
It’s great to see this initiative to recycle cooking oil to make biodiesel. The collection points are near the recycling bins in Donostia-San Sebastian and we have some plainer ones in my adopted town of Hondarribia (and hopefully all over the Basque Country). I love the use of graphics by the local cartoonist whose work can be found here: http://www.kukuxumusu.com/index.php/en/quienes-somos#
