A LITTLE LATE FOR 8/8/88






Caught up with other things these last few days, and will get back to the After Hours post soon. But here's the Cubs first night game. I turned 50 on 9/9/99. And I yelled in the mirror Nein! Nein! Nein!

The game was a rainout. The Chicago Way.

THE TWO-PARTER POST ABOUT NIGHTHAWKS PART TWO WHICH HAS NOTHING TO DO ABOUT NIGHTHAWKS







OK. William G. Raley. Mainly, I started the post because William had mentioned a letter I had sent him back in the day. He published one of the best magazines of the 90s, AFTER HOURS, and I was lucky enough to be in several issues.

The cover that mentions Nighthawks references people and not the Edward Hopper painting. The diner is Josie's, no longer around, a ghost along Pacific Coast Highway in Sunset Beach. Tomorrow I will specifically post photos that relate to the story William and I are referencing in that letter.

Can't find you a specific photo of William, Google search is funny that way. So instead of the esteemed editor, I am posting a photo of William Boeing. And to prove my point about Google search, after I typed in my name, Mickey Dolenz was about four photos in.

TRUMP: ORANGE PUPPET

You can see the stylized D and T there, right? In the 90s, Mark Millar wrote a very good Elseworlds comic for DC. SUPERMAN: RED SON was an idea about how, if Jor-El's rocket had landed twelve hours earlier/later, Kal-El would have been found in Leningrad and not Smallville, Kansas, not far from Wichita, USA.

And now we have a similar, if obese, version in the White House.

PS Putin, if your guys are reading this, all the hugs and love you deserve.
