    AWESOME Phil! Awesome!

    You've once again captured the true spirit, culture and philosophy of the area!


    Gee – we wonder why the "good" employers won't come here. They too realize the true spirit, culture and philosophy of the area. Not to mention the lack of education and work ethic of the area as well.

    These cartoons help reinforce the truth!

    Keep it up!

    Your drawing style reminds me of Gilbert Shelton. Great Illustrations.

    Phil, Well done again. I had a homeless man chase me on Hilltop Dr., screaming for me to give him money. Luckily, I made it into a store, and he moved on. I sure could have used a couple of those Brownies the child in your cartoon is enjoying!

    Redding is changing too fast for me, and not for the better. Plan on moving out soon.

    Philbert…Another homerun on that toon. Our cash crop here in Jefferson is giving us an edge on the Emerald Triangle. Hey it's 4:20, gotta go!

    Regards, dear old Budd
