Dear Friends of SCCS,
weeks to discuss your on-going weeks
to discuss your on-going suggestions
regarding the future of the SCCS
including meeting times, our monthly
newsletter, The Slice of Wry, member
dues and asset allocation.  


Based on member comments about
meeting and newsletter costs, the
Board has decided to discontinue
printing The Slice of Wry. In keeping
with the times, meeting
announcements, president’s blog,
cartooning articles, photos, videos,
job postings, member news,

2008 Comic Convention
Postscripts  
Comic- Con parking is a nightmarish
ordeal of such horrendous
proportions that it deserves its own
description, but there are too many
other aspects of the World's Largest
Cartoon Fandango to use that much
space here. Note  the irony in the use
of "too much space?"
I live fifteen miles away yet still gave
serious consideration to walking to
the convention center  from my front
porch. Not only would it be cheaper, I
likely would arrive sooner than
looking for a parking spot.  Before I
could begin my journey, I charged
fifteen dollars each to three cars that
parked in front of my house. They
were loaded with costumed, portfolio
carrying, Comic Con attenders who
couldn't find a closer place to park.  
With that profit in hand, I figured I
could  bribe one of the pimply faced
parking lot attendants to let me in and
park wherever I wanted. While that
worked, I was still one zip code away
from the main entrance.

We've all watched with
fascination, Cynthia Devereux's
flying fingers, as she sits at the
front of our lectern ASL signing
entire meetings for deaf SCCS
member Dan McClintock.

Now we ask Dan to tell us about
SCCS, about his deaf news
reporting, awards, cartoons, his
fascinating blog posts, deaf
politics and any other subject he
wishes us to know about. Dan
take it away ---

MH: When did you join the
SCCS? And how did you find out
about it?
