I sent my little "weekly" idea off to the River Journal writers, and some of their feedback is too precious not to share.
From Boots: "We're right behind ya!" (So don't bend over.)
From Jinx: "You are the RJ God, you can do what you want to." (Did you get that - the RJ God! I may have to change my title!)
From Lou: "Can you live with a weekly deadline? And a (boatload) of more work? If so, go for it!"
From Jim Tibbs: "Would that mean a weekly cartoon? I'd be happy to oblige."
From Susan: "That would be interesting. My advice: outsource everything!"
