Zonker’s Eyes


Jeff Smith left town yesterday after giving a wonderful commencement speech to the graduating seniors. Will post or link to speech soon.

Two things I learned during Jeff’s visit:

1. Bone was conceived in Northfield, Vermont during the winter of 1980.

2. The red dragon was inspired by Doonesbury’s Zonker.

Wanted: Toy Piano


Seth bought this bust of Beethoven for the Schulz Library after his visit a few years back. Anyone have a toy piano they’d be willing to donate?  —James Sturm
