Inflategate has caused a lot of discussion of the alleged repeated cheating by the New England Patriots. I will give my opinions on the matter and correct a lot of confusion there seems to be about it.
The State of the Union took place on Tuesday as well. I will review some of the highlights.
And in the bottom half of the hour I will have Wendy and Brock from A Wizard Did It to discuss their project and the impact that actions like those that took place in Paris can have on artists.
Those issues, headlines, tweet of the week, and more talk from the left that's right at 8pm central on Blog Talk Radio.

Elisabeth Gifford grew up in a vicarage in the industrial Midlands. She studied French literature and world religions at Leeds University.

We are a team of two, Matt Snipes and Jonathan Matos, who met in our church's youth group, and became friends over a shared love for comic books and comic book films. Our love of good storytelling led us to create our own comic books, web videos, and now our own website, GraphiclyChristian.com. Our anthology series, Gauntlet Magazine, was a "call to action" for faith-based writers and artists to publish more genre and literary fiction, as well as an outlet for our own creations. Recent challenges have got us rethinking that format going forward, but our creativity simply can't be stopped! GraphiclyChristian.com in the new year will feature a new line of webcomics and video content, which we hope will inspire and excite a new generation of creative thinkers!

Join Jordan Margolis ( ExcuseMan) as he talks to Shannon Wheeler bout his new book I Thought You Would Be Funnier
Wheeler was born August 13, 1966 and grew up in Berkeley, California where he attended the Walden Center and School. He later attended Berkeley High School, eventually graduating from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in architecture in 1989.
He started cartooning while at UCBerkeley publishing his daily gag cartoons "Calaboose" and then "Tooth and Justice" in The Daily Californian. In the early 90s, he resided in Austin, Texas, whose laid-back cafe culture fueled and supported the creation of Too Much Coffee Man, becoming a weekly comic strip in 1990, eventually winning Wheeler an Eisner Award. Shannon continued to use this character in self-published zines, comic books, magazines and webcomics for a number of years, culminating in 2006 with the Too Much Coffee Man Opera (in one act) and followed by Too Much Coffee Man Opera, The Refill (in two acts) in 2008. From 2004 until 2008, Shannon contributed to many of the Idiot's Guide books. Shannon's weekly strip Postage Stamp Funnies appeared in the The Onion newspaper until 2009, when he began contributing to The New Yorker magazine. In 2010, Wheeler published a collection of his cartoons rejected by The New Yorker called I Thought You Would Be Funnier, which won the 2011 Will Eisner Comics Industry Award for Best Humor Publication.
Wheeler currently lives in Portland, Oregon.

Penny Arcade web cartoonists explain that life’s just a big game!
The Splendid Magic of Penny Arcade details the history of a web comic strip called “Penny Arcade.” The comic appears to catalog the lives of two young men who are utterly steeped in popular culture.
Each chapter gathers into a coherent beam of savory trivia, strange facts, formerly mysterious origins, biographical information, interviews, inaugural conventions, an unlikely charity, and comic strips. You get the sense that some of the content may be apocryphal—for example, the part where they eat a whole wolf basically comes out of nowhere. Also, if one of them really did become “King of the Britons,” you’re sure you would have heard about it somewhere else.
You close the book and place it back on the shelf. Maybe next time.
Jerry Holkins is the writer of “Penny Arcade.” Holkins also writes the majority of the news posts or rants that accompany each comic. hulikIn the webcomic, his alter ego is known as Tycho Brahe.
Mike Krahulik is the artist for “Penny Arcade.” In the webcomic, his alter ego is Jonathan Gabriel, or simply Gabe.
