The Honorable State Master Robert Hill...
Meanwhile..There was an interesting comment made on the GritCity Blog post "Update from camp No. 2: Of prostitutes, guns and self-tanner" by NihilistForHire
Ah, "The Traveller"... Or, as I prefer to refer to him, "The Wanderer". Does anyone know when he began his political crusade? I am trying to determine a temporal reference point as to the origin of his moniker. I have my hunches.

He showed up one morning to testify in favor of firearms on college campuses, helpfully pulling out a hollowpoint bullet to show lawmakers.
He favors a blue nylon jacket, a black cap, and carries a large aluminum briefcase. But it's the ankle holster that tends to get people's attention.
He pulled up his pant leg to show that he was wearing such an ankle holster, although it was unclear from my seat in the back of the room whether there was anything in it. As Senate security staff circled close behind him...
During this, Sen. Rodney Tom got up and left, and Sen. Brian Weinstein seemed to jokingly pantomime ducking behind his desk.

|is he the new Will Baker? aka muckraker without the muck? i wonder if the traveller will be one of the only people to be kicked out of a city council meeting like will baker? another was my friend, a veteran whom the cops had tasered 3 times in the gravel a few days before they also dragged him out of the city council meeting. but he was more like a real muckraker.|

|Will Baker is just a big fat baby with a pompadour. There is no comparison to the fine tuned anti-hero of "The Traveller" meme. After all "The Traveller" has no personal knowledge.|

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.
