Apparently environmental geo-tech geeks like the comics. And have the time to read them and mock others while packing up their soil samples. Or waiting for their Carhart's to finish drying.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to get back to proofing this postcard that will motivate people to sell enough lawnmowers that they qualify for a trip to Costa Rica. Where they will no doubt save lives and solve the world's hunger problems. All in a day's work for this J-school grad.
