Stay Positive in 2012

With all the political nastiness that's bound to happen in an election year, I knew I was going to have a hard time not getting angry and frustrated every day. But, to paraphrase Linda Holmes, "Too much time spent in a legitimate state of tooth-grinding benefits no one but dentists."

So I decided to create my own logo and motto for 2012, something to remind me not to get too worked up over the blathering of idiots. I immediately thought of the faux-Latin phrase from The Handmaid's Tale, "Illegitimi Non Carborundum." In the story, the main character is told it means "Don't let the bastards grind you down." I drew a goofy happy clown face to go with the saying, and I even put it on buttons and t-shirts.

May we all have a happy new year, and not let the bastards grind us down.

$2 from the sale of each item will be donated to Home Works, a wonderful organization that definitely does a lot to help make people happy.
