A _very_ good article, says I. I particularly liked the way he
presented Hali's Fazaar as a creature born of imagination and
creativity, rather than treating Hali as some kind of delusional
misfit, which would have been a more typical reporter's 'take'.

It's a crutch. something to "help them through the day", No matter if
your life is misery, You're really a magic wolf inside.

That's funny you should mention that because even less than 10% of the article:

As far as artists and comic fans are concerned, this article just like

are completely shut out as usual and the only link back to mainstream
acceptance is shut out with them while once more it appears everything
revolves around these lifestyling/Mucking assholes who just sit around
and blabber all fucking day, when they're not yiffing.
