Linktopia: It Burns, It BURNS
Surfing the best of the writers' blogs so you don't have to.
I don't care what you guys think of Al Gore, but Global Warming is FER REALS. I just spent an afternoon baking in a hot oven of an office with no a/c, so Linktopia is a tad incoherent this week. Or maybe that's 'cause I'm doing it, and not Therese. Whatever, it's hot and I'm sketching.
Or maybe it's the world that's sketching this summer. I just finished reading a new post on Melly's blog, and it really makes me shut my yap. Go there and send her some well-wishes. She needs them right now.
