Is... is Sam committing treason there? I mean, I know it would be if Tona was a CIA agent, but I'm fuzzy on DHS.

(It could be relevant, possibly.)

Geez, bro--Sam is most certainly not committing "treason".

But he is talking shit about Tona behind her back, which is not very nice.

Oh man, the pages next week are going to grotesquely validate this comment...

I know it gets used pejoratively beyond of its actual meaning, but isn't "paramilitary" an accurate descriptor of local American police forces, and lots of parts of the DHS? If this is a matter of the character Sam using a sinister-sounding word for rhetorical value I gotta say that's surprisingly sleazy for someone who should have professional respect for the English language.

"Surprisingly"?

Man sleeps with his grad students and was an executive producer for a docu-exploitation flick called Burn Atlanta 2 Tha Ground.

It's a dirty fight these days, words are weapons, and you don't mess with a Doctor of Journalism.

Professional misconduct and dirty propaganda is one thing, disrespecting the tools of his trade is something else entirely that makes him a hack. But fair, lots of people's careers center on pushing such Orwellian language destruction, including way too many whose education ought to have taught them better.

I guess I'm mostly just tired of the English language itself being a never-ending gangfight.

Eh, don't get too used to him.

...

edit: No, scratch that. Lirv's a troll and the current writing staff isn't much better. So Sam better watch out this week!

Excellent use of atmosphere here, even the single red fire hydrant works well without becoming the focal point of the mostly grayscale page

Appreciated! Yeah, I'm always learning, no formal training here, so there's usually gonna be some random experimental stuff like that hydrant.

Due to reciprocity, there's a surprising number of Minnesotans attending the UW, so the green and gold aren't as prevalent as you'd think. Also, at this time of year (in comic) it's more about the Final Four.
