The Raiders’ Maurice Jones-Drew - a touchdown capped with a “Hands Up - Don’t Shoot” pose.

“I am raising three African American boys,” Jones-Drew told the Chronicle. “Whenever you see things like that … and it’s not just Ferguson, I was in Jacksonville when Trayvon Martin happened, I was in Jacksonville when the gas station shooting over the loud music happened. Those things touch home.

“I definitely wanted to show the people out in Ferguson and around the world that as athletes, we understand and we try to do whatever we can to make a statement. If we could do more, we would.”

A little more in the San Francisco Chronicle.

Posting this because as I walked past it today I was reminded that powers cocreator Mike Oeming drew the first issues of powers in a security booth for a parking lot in the middle of the night.

Full circle!!!

( And I know some people are working their nightmare jobs during the day or night and writing and drawing in their every waking moment of free time. it can be done.)

Cool choice to use comic sans for your show logo, bribri
