And, yet, here you are doing just that.

Oh, Ben, I'm sorry for insulting your 'zine. It's really nice and I am sure that when you grow up you will learn how to draw like a big boy. Yes, you will, you silly. Don't worry. laugh

Guys.

The thread's about Thurmond. Not your pissing contest.

"Strom Thurmond is Dead"

It must've been that Sodomy Law decision in Texas that did him in.

Don't you read, Charles? Its not a Pissing contest, It's a PITH-ing contest.

I love how Matt gets all huffy, and assumes that I'm making fun of Strom's Death because I disagree with his politics. (he brought that up over on the other thread where he's hiding) How I feel about his politics had nothing to do with my response. But Matt presumes to "know" my motivation, all-knowing comics demi-god that he purports himself.

If you need to know Matt, the inner workings of my mind. I simply made a comics-related reference to the resemblance so many mainstream comics characters have to Lazarus. Since somebody mentioned Stroms Death here in a "Comics" forum, I made a comic-referenced joke about him being brought back eventually.

Just like I'm sure we'll all joke after your death, Mr. Hawes. As soon as the kegs are empty, and the confetti has settled.

Strom Thurmond? Dead?

There... there's so much I want to say! Oh God, where to begin...

Oh, that's right.

Anyone that takes pleasure in the death of another person is an asshole. You can hate the man and his stand, but to take pleasure in his death makes you no better then what you hate. And for the record I thought Thurmond was a racist pig, who should have never been elected.

And I wasn't trying to single anyone out here, but that's how I feel about it. I see this alot people happy about the death of someone they hated or disagreed with..childish, and petty.
Oh and Matt, what the fuck is your problem? We all know you hate good comics, leave Ben alone, one of his stories has more soul and drive then anything youv'e sold in your store all year, I'd bet.

With respect, because I know you mean the best here, bullshit. The man was outright evil. If there's any justice in the universe, he's a slave on the devil's plantation as we speak. And if you think hating an individual person for who they are is the same as hating a race for what they are, you're deluding yourself.

The world is a better place without him than with him. And the fact that he's gone makes me very happy.

It used to scare the hell out of me when I'd hear audio of him speaking in the Senate. He sounded like Methuselah Bumpus, World's Oldest Hillbilly.

Boy, Ben, you sure do get touchy when someone doesn't like your 'zine.

Now continue with your attacks on dead people. smile
