This sounds really cool: The creator of Robot Hugs will be sharing an Information Studies paper called "Other," about how people are classified and the consequences of being hard to define, presented as a long-form comic.
Robot Hugs is one of my favorite comics. It is full of incisive observations about identity, gender, disability, (and cats!) made with candor and humor. I love the diversity in the cast, and I love how often I can recognize myself in the people and situations shown.

It's really nice to work with people who are so good at what they do, and so friendly and pleasant! They care and are careful with all your belongings from the fancy antiques to the plain old boxes of books. A trustworthy company and a great experience!

Caring, well-organized and thoughtful program. 12-step focus; attendance at onsite Alcoholics/Narcotics Anonymous meetings required. An Intensive Outpatient Program is available for continuing recovery assistance. Will help with finding clean & sober housing for post-treatment by request. Co-ed; separate men's and women's wings for living quarters, but classes and activities are mixed. Rooms have two or three beds; showers and toilets are separate but plentiful - over my 19 day stay I never had to wait to get into either. Bottom line: you'll get out it what you put into it, but if you are serious about recovery from alcohol or drug addiction, I recommend it. If you aren't, you'll be unhappy and wasting your time.
