This is one of Tom’s favorite cartoons. It was originally run in “Pluggers” back in 1993. Tom would refer to it whenever people at work started to take for granted the minor miracles that had become part of the job. It obviously took on deeper meaning after the Challenger and Columbia disasters.

Geeks in Space

It’s only three days from the premier of Star Wars – Episode III – Revenge of the Sith…and the geeks are lined up again in front of NYC’s Zigfield Theater.

It saddened me to think that this is the last time these geeks will get to assemble in such a manner. When again will any theatrical event engender such devotion and enthusiam? Worst yet, Tom has to work most of the day may 19th and it looks like a “first day” tradition is about to be outgrown…
