Calvin & Hobbes

I somewhat follow a blog by a ranting US statistician with many stereotypical US obsessions (religion being a major one), don’t ask me why, but his quirky taste for visuals does play into it. A recent post on predictions was headed by this fabulous Calvin & Hobbes strip:

What a stunning display of insight into the condition humaine…

Even more so for someone Dutch, culturally groomed with the weather as the dominant  conversational amuse, engine oil, and stopgap.

Yes, we haven’t even mastered the weather, although out technological hubris in this era of anthropogenically fueled climate change is undoubtedly going to result in scary experiments to do so.

A nice factoid I was not aware of until googling a bit for this post was that Calvin & Hobbes creator, Bill Waterson was apparently considered the JD Salinger of cartooning.

Still figuring out the story line that would satisfy myself here. Listening to what my family and friends evoke, what the words I absorb, the images that move me, the movements that still me, point to.
