    Looks great. Wish I could go, but I’m stuck in Florida for awhile until my next visit up north (sigh).

    Tom: I just emailed Joe Wos that I’ve mailed him a Doug Sneyd B & W, 8 1/2 x 11, original Playboy gag rough reject as a donation to the June 5th fundraiser. (Doug has been a full-page color cartoonist with Playboy for 45 years.) I will also promote KA-BLAM on Doug’s blog:

    We hope the fundraiser is a HUGE success!
