Amy McBride, Tacoma Art Commission Czar Sez: "DON'T PANIC!!"
In a firestorm of emails with CARTOONIST and TACOMA ART LISTSERVE ACTIVIST, RR Anderson, Viceroy and Czar of the Tacoma Arts Commission Amy McBride KILLS ALL RUMORS with HARD FACTS.
Here is What we know
1. At aprox 25:00 Hours on Monday The Listserve suffered an unprovoked art attack from a non NATO country somewhere in the Adriatic Sea
2. Mon - Thurs LOCAL ARTISTS begin to riot in the streets having no avenue for announcements of self-expressionSeveral slower, sicker Tacoma Arts Commissioners are picked off from the herd by gallery owners turned cannibal, vindictive.
3) TODAY: If things are not fixed soon, Abandon all Hope
Reenactment or Simulation:
Refulgent Hope, Future...RR's Direct Question: "Is there infact hope? Will the Listserv be fixed?"
Amy McB: "Yes it is and we can't announce it because it is down. It is being fixed and is supposed to be done soon but could you tell people?"
RR Champion of the People: "Yes I will Tell the WORLD"
Amy McB: **swoons**

RR Anderson is one of the most curious characters in the UFO lore and the history of underground cartooning. He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
