I Tried To Build A Transmogrifier Once, But I Couldn't Get The Parts

My son and I used to read Calvin & Hobbes together when he was little. Boy, was that a mistake. C&H is The Anarchist's Cookbook for seven-year-olds. As an aside, we read a lot of Shel Silverstein, too, which, now that I think about it, goes a long way towards explaing a lot of things. But I digress.

It's well known among C&H fans how publicity-averse Bill Watterson is - I was shocked to find a picture of him in his Wikipedia entry - but Len Peralta of Jawbone Radio took a trip to Watterson's hometown of Chagrin Falls, Ohio, and managed to score a brief interview from Watterson's mother. It's worth a listen, especially if you start at about the 7:10 mark to avoid the slightly stalker-esque part where he interviews everyday folks in the town who might have some inside info about him.
