words, rhythms, sounds. Besides being a staller draftsman, Walt Kelly was a
musician of dialog. He wielded and warped words the way a jazz musician
bends notes and inflects a phrase. Everything felt ?homey? and natural."
Agree, whole heartedly. Now howabout a groundswell of support for the nomination of Mr. Pogo Possum as our next president. Nowhere in the constitution does it say that the president has to be a human bean! Our slogan "We Could Do Worse", or how about "From here on down, it's uphill all the way" In the immoral words of the former candidate: "If elected, I will not run. If nominated, I will not serve."
Jazz content: "I'm Just Wild About Harry" ... Oops, wrong candidate. 8>))
