For those who have asked or have considered asking about the flooding currently occurring in West Virginia: Our family is safe. Our house is up on a mountain and far enough from the flood plains to not be directly affected. However, there are many people in our area who are affected. If you wish to help those in need, please contact the WV division of the American Red Cross or the WV VOAD, or check out this Huffington Post article for additional links.

[Comic for Sunday, December 18, 2005]


[[A gaunt Trish is hooked up to the MUTEX and what appears to be life support]]
Shadowy figure 1: Remove her from the apparatus.
Shadowy figure 2: Yes, my Lord.

Shadowy figure 2: Bear in mind that she is very weak. Effectively, she has not used this body for months. Atrophy has claimed much of her bodily systems, and--
Shadowy figure 1: She is strong enough to listen.

Shadowy figure 1: You have failed me for the last time, Agent 2478.
Trish: M-Milord, I-I almost had it. If you could give me just a few more minutes...

Shadowy figure 1: I gave you nearly two and a half years! And you STILL did not reach your objective. My patience has limits.
Trish: I-I'll be more direct! Give me one more chance!

[[Armed and armored guards flank the shadowy figure]]
Shadowy figure 1: I've delayed my plans long enough due to your incompetence. Guards, give miss Marshall her severance package.

[[There is a bright flash in the background]]
Shadowy figure 1: And get a janitorial crew up here. You know how I hate tracking blood all over this expensive carpet.
