A certain segment of America is very nostalgic about the 1950s. I’m a little too young to remember much about that decade but is seems idealized on TV. I suspect it wasn’t all Mayberry and cool stops around Route 66, though I wish we still had more of those roadside attractions.


You probably don't know my name, but have likely seen my work. I'va written for numerous syndicated cartoon strips and my gags have appeared in national pubs.
