Lessons from Bill Watterson

Those who have never encountered Bill Watterson's excellent cartoon strip, Calvin and Hobbes (or Tommy and the Tiger in some of its translations), would gain greatly by a visit to .

Watterson has managed to capture lots of fine observations about the world. His central characters are a six year old boy called Calvin and his friend Hobbes, a tiger (who appears, to grown-ups, as a stuffed toy). So, of course, there's plenty of material on the trials of parenthood and how dumb the grown-up world looks to a kid. There's also a whole lot of incisive observations about our world. The cartoons occasionally inspire me: in time, some essays may fall out of that.
