Quick assignment for the NY Times Letters to the Editor, out in today’s paper. The topic is about the recent Supreme Court decision to strike down abortion clinic buffer zones on the grounds of “free speech” (you can read the original article reporting the decision here, and the Letters section here). Previously, protesters had to stay 35ft away from the entrances to abortion clinics (a distance at which they were still able to exercise their ‘right’ to scream and harass) but now they will be allowed to do it directly in the faces of women seeking medical treatment.
Thanks to my AD Nathan Huang. This was an assignment I felt pretty strongly about. If the Letters section wasn’t neutral ground, you can bet I would have drawn the protestors differently in this piece.

Look at this little cutie!
Happy belated first birthday to Penny, the most friendly and sociable WFT I’ve ever known!

(Side note: don’t worry, the things on her ears are stickers, not earrings. The groomer puts them on her.)

Defending Vivi (One Piece)

Really? The girl with awesome weapons, not involved in any romance, and the need to help people is getting hate? *sigh* I shouldn’t be so surprised…

Princess
 
…And? Tough if you don’t like princesses. This actually helps inform her character as to why she’s as determined as…

things that are okay

  • liking snape as a character

things that are not okay

  • thinking snape was a good guy
  • romanticizing his relationship / obsession with lily
  • defending snapes actions (namely outing remus as a werewolf, bullying neville and hermione in particular but was cruel to many other students too)
