My dear artist friend in Florida W. B. Park wrote me today after reading my rant about the US destabilizing Ukraine.  I've been working with Will since the early 1980's when I was organizing in Florida.  He made countless drawings and cartoons for leaflets, newsletters, posters, and even once designed us a billboard that we put up.  When I published my book, Come Together Right Now: Organizing Stories from a Fading Empire, I used all of Will's artwork that I could dig up.

Will's first draft today was a pencil sketch and I asked him to add the "missile defense" interceptors that the US-NATO are now surrounding Russia with.  He put them in Uncle Sam's hand and then mixed in the color and fine-tuned the piece.  It's totally brilliant and I just love the big military boot that the Pentagon is now stomping down on the neck of much of the world.

Thank you Will.  You are great.
