CG's legislative ideas

So New York State did get some big, splashy legislation passed and signed this past Friday... the marriage equality bill.  Naturally, CG hopes to parlay that into momentum for his own [crazy] legislation.  Never mind the legislative session is wrapped up and the legislators have gone home to their districts.  :)

Another funny last name....

Albany public figures beware!  You never know when Albanymous might catch a glimpse of you.  I actually spotted Fred Dicker in Bermuda shorts when I was meeting someone by the NYS Capitol Building.  He was grinning and getting into the car of someone who'd pulled up to give him a ride.  When I saw him, he had on a polo shirt with his Bermuda shorts, but I've been told that he's also been known to pair them with jackets and ties, so I thought I'd go with that for more comic effect.

Fred Dicker hosts a daily political radio talk show on AM channel 1300, provides commentary on Albany's CBS station, WRGB, and does a column for the New York Post.  If only he had his own newspaper, CG would think he has a media empire and envy him as much as he envies Chartock.

Technically, CG and (N)J should be standing in front of the NYS Education Building:

But I probably would have needed another week to include that in my backgrounds for panels 2-6.  Maybe I'll add them in later if I ever have an excess of time!

And it's up... only ::mumble::fourdayslate::mumble::

Posted "Saturday's" post last night (Wednesday).  Eventually will get ahead of my own deadlines.  The good news is that I've gotten pretty far along in penciling the next (6/18/11) strip and am reasonably confident that I can get it uploaded ontimishly.

So obviously this strip was created before the latest "Weiner" news (he's resigning).  Maybe CG will finally be convinced that (N)J is right and there is such a thing as BAD attention.  :)

Weiner and [fill in your own joke about "wiener"]

In case you've missed the kerfuffle about the pic sent from Representative Anthony Weiner's Twitter account, Google News will get you up to speed....

The jokes really do write themselves.  In fact, it's difficult (I was about to say "hard") to discuss this WITHOUT making a joke, even if you're not trying to.  So for CG, this would be exhilarating and depressing, as everyone else will have beat him [see?] to the jokes first.
