Hiatus Update – February 27, 2020

Still holding back on more reporting until I see signs that local government understands the predicaments of global corporate centralization and is prepared to take up relocalization seriously.


Still printmaking – some of them may be available downtown at Nittany Quill in the next week or so.

Still developing a fiction series about Lessshittyopia, circa 2030.

Tightening up the website in the meantime, and giving up Internet for Lent, except for twice weekly email checks on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Bound volumes available for $20 each. Call 237-0996, email kw.investigations.llc@gmail.com, or stop by/write to me at 156 West Hamilton Ave. to purchase. Cash or check only: the revolution will not be online.
