Greetings from Sunny...Casablanca?

Hi, no, we're not dead, nor have we abandoned the blog.  Some people know this from facebook or email, but the long and short of it is, we, along with more than a few other people, lost our job in Jakarta because of idiotic bureaucratic government bullshit that had nothing to do with us.  Point being: now I'm teaching in Morocco, of all damn places, and I'm still kind of getting settled in.  More Barks stuff ought to follow, as well as--for whatever percentage of the readership that cares--a new translation, if I can keep my motivation up.

There are and downs here, compared to my previous job.  One of the biggest ups, however, is the fact that you can buy French Disney comics just any ol' place.  Sure, I could buy Bahasa Indonesia comics in Jakarta, but given that my Bahasa never progressed beyond the ability to give terse, caveman-like instructions to taxi drivers, that really wasn't much good.  It's nice to be in a place where you can regularly read new Disney comics.  You know, since their birthplace seems to be a non-starter in that regard...
