Connoisseurs of fine cartooning have probably figured out by now that the new header at the top of this blog was created by the inimitable RL Crabb, part of a redesign of the blog.
I would like to state for the record that Mr. Crabb was compensated for his work, and that I am not now, and never have been, a member of the Shifters.
Shifty? Possibly. Shiftless? You bet. But never a Shifter.
