Major markets include the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, the Washington Times, the Sacramento Bee, the Houston Chronicle, the Orange County Register, the Edmonton Sun, the Topeka Capital Journal, and the Los Angeles Daily News.

The result is a hilarious and often uncannily accurate exploration of our crazy life and times.
