On weekends instead of watching sports my Dad would get out a music stand (with libretto) and a baton and with the volume rattling the windows conduct one of Wagner's operas. It wasn't until we returned to The States a month before my tenth birthday that I heard anything besides classical. Wahnfried is the name of Richard Wagner's home in Bayreuth, Bavaria. It means Madness Free. I was born in Nurnberg.





RED MEAT is an independent, alternative comic strip begun in late 1989. It has appeared in over 160 alternative weeklies, magazines and college newspapers both in the US and abroad. Since 1996, it has been available for reading on the web.

    1. I wish you could have seen them, the twinkle in their eyes and barely-suppressed chortles as they handed me the cutout cartoon and said: "This is you!" meaning, of course, the cow.

    "My" own German is Bavarian, closer to Munich.
