Pollak has a bio, most of which seems to be factual, though it's a blog, so you never know. It reads in part: "A self-trained cartoonist and illustrator, Pollak graduated from the class of 2003 at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where he studied animation for his BFA in Film & Television.... Having turned an intense interest in politics into an actual career, John now works during daylight hours as Legislative Director for New Jersey State Assemblywoman Lorretta Weinberg." Which brings us to his blog--also political and interesting (though he also still does animation, it's the blog in which I'm mainly interested). As a guy on the "inside," his blog features a fair amount of political analysis. Like all of us these days, he's got a lot of material to work with at the federal level--and there's Bush-bashin' aplenty!
Trenchant quote: "Sure to be shouted down as "un-American," I'm still amazed at the unmitigated gall of the people in charge of defending us. Amidst wisdespread incidents of soldiers torturing and murdering prisoners, revelaed and believed by American media sources only after photographic evidence arose, Donald Rumsfeld has taken decisive action on the matter: by banning cameras."
