Also, your old premium “Turn the Hi-Fi Down” has been in constant play since you issued it way back when.

A lot of us have had various issues with those early Harvey comics.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:45pm mariano:

There was a movie called "The Front" directed by Martin Ritt starring Woody Allen that's about a hack writer who becomes a front for blacklisted writers, propelling him to stardom as one of the best and most prolific writers of all time. He eventually gets called to testify, and there's a great part where he says "Fellas... I don't recognize the right of this committee to ask me these questions. Furthermore, you can all go fuck yourselves."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:46pm listener monica:

wow i don't think i ever tuned into this show from my computer before! I usually listen while in my car driving somewhere. this is much nicer!
