My Harbornet Connection is Slow and Lame
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the PUBLIC COMMENT on TV Tacoma. I want folks to recognize our civic speakers on the street and have compassion for the thundering engine driving them. "I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization." - RR Anderson

"Let me say this slowly so you can savor it... the public records devision is top notch."
Robert "The Traveller" Hill a.k.a. Jesse Hill
RR Commentary: Mr. Hill has shaved his beard and eyebrows completely off. He was also chewing gum at one point. Note also jumpsuit, "commander mark" ear piece and sleeve pen which may or may not be a white-out applicator. Can you spot the policeman in this photo?
Mr. David Creso, Man w. Bolo Tie
"Stop the corporate welfare."

"We've got to protect the creek"

"Keep the A-Street Open!"
RR Commentary: The Mayor says the A-Street will be closed anyhow when Sound Transit cuts Tacoma in half (not pictured).

|Glad to see the anti-corporate welfare soldier fightin' the good fight.
Mr. Hill got white fingernail polish?

|sharp eye Mofo. white fingernail polish indeed...|
Mr. Hill was pretty big on walkie talkies this session.
My question is this: Who does "The Traveller" talk to on the other end of the Walkie Talkie?
by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 6/18/2008 @ 10:02am
|If it is white out in his pencil pocket it is probably white out on his fingernails. The question is why?|
by NineInchNachos on 6/18/2008 @ 10:25am
|an ill conceived method to disguise fingerprints?|

|Ours is not to question why, only to sit back and enjoy Mr. Hill continue to morph into superb characters that make viewing that much better.|

|"The Hill Meme/Trope" will continue to mutate and I find that attractive.|

|I think he was actuall plugging the "Nextel" brand. He mistakenly believes that Nextel is to push to talk technology what Kleenex is to tissue paper.
I thought that someday I'd like to comment at a council meeting but I'd hate to be lumped into the "knob" category.
by NineInchNachos on 6/18/2008 @ 3:28pm
|yeah knob category is laziness on my part... though here are some handy tips to escape this unfortunate label:
- impassioned speaking (at least an effort)
- use of hand props
- colorful costume/frippery
- excessive facial hair
someday I'm going to comment also. I have dreams about it really.

|man I could almost make up some trading card stats out of these categories (above)..
by HD on 6/18/2008 @ 6:48pm
|I think a Stowe/RR collaboration is definately warranted on such a project as council trading cards.
You can't let brilliant ideas that this go by the wayside.

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.
