Gaylord Perry, legendary spitballer and Baseball Hall of Famer

Grew up with him.  First with the Giants, my original home team and then he got traded to my adopted home team, the Indians. Frank Duffy, also a Giant that I grew up with came along, too.  We even had Gaylord's brother, Jim Perry here at the same time and they were team mates for two years.

Gaylord made his games an event, a spectacle worth watching just to see him getting inspected and wondering if they would finally catch him.  Only one other in baseball had that distinction in my book, Orioles manager Earl Weaver.

Thanks for the wonderful summers of fun and adventure.

Aw, he was great. And these days we know the spitball isn't really a thing, but the head games involved certainly are!

I'm more familiar with Shary Flenniken who drew Trots and Bonnie and is pretty deserving of that title.

They're both brilliant artists. I suspect more feminist artists would cite Kominsky-Crumb as an influence (see, for instance, Phoebe Gloeckner's Diary of a Teenage Girl) but I'll leave that argument for others more versed in the feminist movement. Very sorry to see her go.

Farewell to the Mother of Modern Feminist Cartooning

Aline Kominsky-Crumb, R.I.P.


Aline Kominsky-Crumb, a great and trailblazing cartoonist, died this week in her home in France at age 74 from pancreatic cancer.

Here's something you might like to start with. This is with his last collaboration, Pete's Posse.

The tall guy is Oliver Scanlon, who you will definitely hear from in the future. Pete recruited him while he was still in high school, where he (Pete) ran a traditional music program.

I just got home and that greeted me on the TV news.
Christine was my favorite by far. Never got to see them in person but my uncle did a photo shoot for Fleetwood Mac in Houston back in the 70’s.
