The Best Book kickstarter
Unshelved strip for 10/13/2007

Diversity Begins at Home

For the third time in three years, one or more members of my family has appeared in the local paper. This time it was everyone but me (though I'm briefly mentioned) in this article about transracial adoption. That's my wife and daughter in the picture (there are more pictures, including one of my long-haired son, here).

While we're on the subject, those of you following our quest to move to a more diverse neighborhood will be pleased to hear that today we found a house we love and our offer was accepted. It's to the East of Columbia City (Seward Park/Lakewood) in South Seattle. Our new street has lots of differently colored faces, and that part of Seattle in general has a wonderful cross section of humanity. I think our daughter will feel more at home, and will have a better chance to figure out who she is.

Thanks to everyone who has been so supportive of this mission. We're excited to open this next chapter in our lives. And there are more big changes on the way.

My Safeword is "Ow!"

Today's punchline comes courtesy of our man Jim Demonakos. He told it to us this spring and we've been giggling about it ever since. It is also, finally, available in t-shirt form.

P.S. The script for this strip says "Tamara is doing Scorpion Pose. Buddy looks like a transporter accident."
