Daily Thoughts 06/19/2016

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of The View from the Cheap Seats this morning.  I am reading about Neil Gaiman and comics.  I learned that Neil Gaiman started as a journalist, then moved into writing comics.  There is a very nice introductory speech for the 2003 Eisner Awards as well as the 2004 Kurtzman awards for comics.  Neil Gaiman does a good job describing why comics are art.

I read the graphic novel by Daniel Clowes, Patience.  It is a time travel story where a man makes a mistake in his younger years and goes back to make things right, but ends up doing some very strange things.

I read some more of Walkable City today.  I am reading about the need for an integrated parking plan for on street parking, off street parking, residential parking, and parking garages.  The author describes how metered parking revenues can be used to improve repairs to streets, street lights, and signs.
