"Only the dead have seen the end of war."...Plato

These drawings were almost entirely from TV--news, movies, concerts, commercials, whatever. I didn't realize their relevance until after September 11, 2001. The Israeli invasion of Lebanon marked the beginning of suicide bombing and the birth of Al Qaeda. I discovered that I had left two blank pages near the end of the book, as if they had been waiting 17 years for a climactic conclusion. I was afraid that the only thing worse than 9-11 would be our reaction to it. Nostradamus I ain't, but I sure nailed that one.

But the damn fool said to push on." (Pete Seeger)
