I was going through some Berke Breathed comic strips today, and saw this one. I love the Bloom County series. It had a way of dealing with fears, phobias, and political correctness in a way that didn't leave you uptight.
Anyhow... This one seems apropos for a martial arts forum in a metaphorical way. (Plus... I've been known to be preoccupied with some subjects... ) For you martial artists out their worrying about "the boogeyman" when you lay awake at night, perhaps this comic strip will put "fear" in perspective.
