Roz Chast's new tax bracket noted by Comic Riffs

New Yorker's Roz Chast stunned by $250,000 Heinz Award for her 'uncompromising' work

With all due respect to Roz, this is what happens when a group of people who know nothing about comics and graphic novels read the news and hear about an interesting singleton.

I quote:

"These remarkable men and women come from different fields and diverse backgrounds, but they share a bedrock conviction in their ability and responsibility as individuals to make a transformative impact on the world and the lives of others," foundation chair Teresa Heinz says today in a statement, by way of announcing the news. "They offer an inspiring reminder that the most precious kind of change always comes from those who see past today's limitations to a world of new possibilities and discoveries."

However, Roz's book was ENTIRELY about being unable to change the world and see past today's limitations. The actual award citation is nice however, even if it's another celebration about how the mass of baby boomers are yet again different as they deal with their aging parents.
