What else might a female cadet do? Guess in a comment.
My friend Jim Rinnert has been making boxes since I’ve known him. I’m sure he was making them before I knew him. I met him through In These Times, a socialist newspaper in Chicago. So that has to be about 35 years ago. I wanted to say 40, but that would make me in my 80’s and I don’t think that’s the case. In These Times published a Sylvia strip every week. The Sun Times allowed the strip to run in this weekly paper, which violated their rule that Sylvia not run in a competing newspaper. I guess they weren’t afraid of In These Times circulation figures.
As far as I know, Jim makes these boxes purely for the love of figuring them out and working on them and then having completed them. I admire this. I think he should have a party at his house and exhibit them to his fans and friends.
I suppose it’s too late to invite us all to the garden….
Here are some bonus cartoons for you and to forward to friends.
I loved Science Fiction, before I discovered Mystery Novels and the Lonely Detective. Pavlar is a gossip columnist and although he has a good heart, his moral reach is not very large. He makes enemies of all kinds and they are always knocking him for a loop. He falls in love easily and always with a blonde with a past.
More trouble with blondes. Oh, it’s the same one!
