Today's comic was a tough one to write. I wasn't in a funny mood.
Most of my life was spent living in Orlando, FL, the sight of this weekend's mass shooting... The largest mass shooting in US history.
I try to make this page an escape. You guys don't come to this site to read my opinion on the world at large. But, like many of you, I was deeply upset by the truly horrific events over the weekend.
Footage of Sunday morning's shootout with the police took place behind a friend's house, the unrelated shooting on Friday that took the life of a talented singer from the Voice was only a few blocks from my old home.
At the time of this writing, details and names of the victims are still being released. The LGBT community has had a rough uphill climb, and I'm deeply saddened that it would be the target of such a cruel act of hatred. I am also touched by the outpouring of support in the Orlando community and the world at large.
Is this the appropriate place to bring all this up? I don't know. Is every other site on the internet doing the same? Probably. But I'm human, that's what's on my mind, so there you go.
