Oh, yes. If by his "uphill climb" to citizenship Jim is implying that it is "easier than ever!" than he has again hit the nail on the head!

Mr. Borgman, I think a wonderful way to welcome all of the illegal aliens - or "undocumented workers" in PCspeak - would be to begin writing your captions in spanish.

Entonces no tendriamos que leerlos.

I'm reading Richard Henry Dana, Jr.s novel, "Two Years Before The Mast" and in it he describes his voyage as a young man from Boston to California in the 1830's.
A lot of the book talks of stops in various Californian ports, trading, shipping, selling goods, mingling with the local inhabitants of Mexican heritage, Spanish speaking, you know.
Because at the time, California was not part of the United States but was Mexican territory, as many other southwest states at the time, were.
To me, you can get all possesive about who belongs where and who doesn't and who's illegal and who isn't however, Mexico has probably got a greater claim to these lands by virtue of being there first and inhabiting these lands longer than the raucous and vocal Americans, who have a zeal to possess, so much.
Lets try to share a little more out West for how it was won was with many differing nationalities.
Put up all your fences if you choose, "you" don't own anything.

Wondering if you have any sketches leading up to this final drawing. The reason I ask is personally I thought this was showing a left turn and not an uphill climb and it did not make sense. An uphill climb makes much more sense. Not trying to be picky or anything because I love your work but wondered if you attempted other variations of the hill and settled on this one or maybe you (and others) saw a hill right away.

oh God, Jim please....

stick to your dedication drawings to artists who have died....its the only thing that shows you have any shred of originality.

I agree with Wettengel on this. I immediately saw a lefthand turn.

I'm not sure about positioning the immigrant on the back of the bike, holding Dubyah's butt like that....seems a little homoerotic. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Jim, did you just happen to see "Napoleon Dynamite" or something? What's up with the ND references lately?
