I don't care...I'm to tired to spell so don't even start guys...
Based on what I saw from Bigalke in a RECENT TD, I think you might need to open a Comics section in this libraray. Actually Zach...those comics are quite interesting in there history and such. Man I knew I should have grabbed all the movie rights when I was a kid. "Snap"
I left a few words in Mission Statement blog...
Yes Seabird thanks...I finally bowed to your pressure and joined.
