By your Skinny, Skin SKiN.

ASK's CLARIFICATION: There's no Connection between my SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature involving my TOYS as the leading characters and Skins, the Brit-Oriented TV Show that recently landed here in The States. Nearly sounds the same; totally different.

Last Day of Intl Thank You Days (C)1994

Chicago, IL USA

It's been a long haul, thanking all those people who have helped you out, but today is the last day of the HOLIDATE till next year. And, maybe just perhaps after thanking and appreciating those around you the last 8 days, you'll be a bit more sympathetic of others needs and grateful for what we do have. After all, into everyone's life a HOLIDATE must fall. With 1900+ on my Eventological Roster, it's nice to know that we don't miss anyone.

A Free Blog-Burb for Norton Juster of The Phantom Tollbooth Fame

As posted on my Facebook Account at:

GREAT TOPIC: Let's hear it for Reading.

The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster is my favorite book -- written in 1961 IF I had only read it then, I'd have a totally different out look on MATH & might even be a math or computer geek today. Better late than never - my Friend, NAOMI turned me on to it 2.5 years ago and I'm still talking about it and even devoted one of my blogs to it at Koopersmithin. Oh, yes, it's a Kid's Book with Adult meanings and symbols.

International Thank You Days: #18. Does Snow count?

Chicago, IL USA:

A FEW THOUGHTS FROM ITD's Creator follow:

With Intl Thank You Days here and upon us for the next 8 days, is it fair to ask:

Is 3 inches of snow something to be thankful about?

To skiiers and snowmobilists I would guess so, but for me who likes 70 degrees with a cool breeze coming off the lake, I'd have to disagree on that one. However, there are manypeople I am thankful for today -- who've made my life so much better; besides the riches that are found online and beneath my feet - the ability to move and get around, whatever the climate brings us.

Here's hoping you are as thankful for the blessings your life holds and is holding for you.

The Party celebrating the 17TH annual NATIONAL SMITH DAY will be meeting tonite at the Ritz Carlton to commemorate the uniqueness of being a SMITH - whether you're a young one - old one - black, white, yellow, red or brown smith -- there's a certain something we all have that makes that subtle difference in the great number of Smiths that inhabit the planet.

From the Creator of NATIONAL SMITH DAY ©1995 - Update for 2011

Chicago, IL USA

Celebrating JANUARY 6, 2011 as NATIONAL SMITH DAY #17

There are more Smiths in the United States than any other surname and for that reason as well as a few others, I created NSD 17 years ago to commemorate those with this common, yet uncommon name. There are all sorts of SMITHS out there as:

coppersmiths &

Yet, each one comes with their own stories and glories. As for me and my family personally, when my grandparents came to the USA in the early 1900s and passed through Ellis Island many decided to shorten our last name:


to Kooper or Smith...

and that's yet another reason wonder why I may be missing some of my relatives because of this change in our real name. I may never know, but by honoring and saluting Captain John Smith as the first Smith to arrive in America and with social networks like Facebook connecting us all - as well as the 6-Degrees of Separation slipping down to something like 1.5-2 degrees, it's interesting to meet up with more Smiths and easier than ever before.

The Encyclopedia of Fine Smithery ©2005-2010

will be published circa 2013. If you're a Smith and would like inclusion and care to interview me about this special Holidate-to-celebrate, email me at:

Reviving CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME ©1991 for its 20TH Year Anniversary: 2011

Creator’s Update: Tuesday, January 4, 2011 – 10:26 AM CST

I always felt that it’s the opportunity(ies) that a person is given that will determine what (if any) his/her lifestyle will be(come). Without a chance (at even ‘The Basics’ that life has to offer), there’s hardly a civil way for someone (who was not born with a silver spoon and/or even a spoon in their mouth) will achieve any goals, milestones, etc. in his/her life. Add to this scenario the stigma attached to Racism and even as we enter 2011, the jails and prisons across the world show that the line between the Have’s and the Have-Nots is still wide and undivided.

During college, I studied Criminology & Sociology at Washington University. Upon moving to Chicago in the late Spring of 1974, I was to learn through experience, the best teacher, that Crime can and does happen to all of us. No one is immune from it and no one is immortal (as I had previously assumed for some unexplained reason). Life is a chance we take every day, upon waking.

After being violently assaulted, robbed and left-for-dead in the lobby of my apartment building on Monday, December 23, 1991 at 6 PM sharp, I was inspired by CAVE MAN NEVER©1990, a Cartoon Character I was creating to start a Humanitarian Crusade called: CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME ©1991 whereby Cartoonists, Illustrators & Graphic Artists (of every level) would help me to TOON OUT CRIME. After all, CAVE MAN NEVER saw the proliferation of the handgun; nor was he attacked in the lobby of his cave.

Although this Creative Endeavor was launched 3 years before I bought my first personal computer and 4 years before I hopped on to the Internet, because Crime Prevention was #1 on President Bill Clinton’s Agenda (due to my PRAM: Public Relations/Marketing/Advertising Savvy, ample doses of Artistic Flair and the fact that it was such a tragic yet newsworthy project), CAC rapidly grew into an International Club with people (from across the world) donating Cartoons in order to ‘SAVE A PRECIOUS LIFE.’

“After all,” I had stated in the vast amount of literature I was writing, “we may not all speak the same language, but the expression on a character’s face can speak for us. And that expression may help to save someone from a violent attack and/or hurtful experience.” That was the main purpose for the crusade. Three local Art Receptions at major venues were held through 1993 to promote and show how therapeutic the ARTS can be.

What really surprised and then totally interested me was that somehow my Requests for Toons was entering the U.S. Penal System and every so often via the mailman, I would receive a clump of cartoons stamped (from a penitentiary) created by a cell-mate who was remorseful that he (always a male in this case) had committed a crime. He sat down and diligently took time out and drew a few Cartoons for my Campaign. CAC was ‘working’ in ways I had never ever imagined it would do.

My parents and one of my mentors had always told me to ‘walk in the shoes of someone else to feel what he/she is feeling – to know what he/she is going through.’ Knowing that not all of us have the privileges of being White, well-educated, financially set and even witty and attractive, I felt sorry for those individuals who were targeted by society and those who were unjustly bigoted, thus at a disadvantage or any level where they thought they would have to stoop to committing a crime in order to get through the day. Of course, the dynamics of the war on drugs, gang recruitment and domestic violence are different than what I am citing, but the bottom line is that: Crime never goes away. Families suffer. People are hurting needlessly. “Even though it sounds horrific to say, because of their particular circumstances,” I felt, “sometimes the only way out to survive is lead a life of crime, until they are caught and incarcerated.”

TODAY: As We enter the Second Decade of 2011, crime is still making front page news as it buries people, found at the end of our newspapers in the obituary columns. Now upon CAC’s 20TH Year Anniversary (marked on Friday, December 23, 2011), it would be interesting to restart CARTOONISTS AGAINST CRIME ©1991 although funding to turn CAC into a non-profit may not be possible due to the economic downturn in America and the cutbacks Americans are feeling. This, too, adds fire to an ever-growing problem of how we can save others from not pursuing a Life of Crime that is glamorized by books, TV and the movies.

After all, if The Youth of Today can find Solace in The Creative Arts as I have via Cartooning & Writing and/or sports that gives them an active and physical outlet, then they would be less likely to pursue a Life of Crime, one that would totally scar their chances of ever pursuing a good life, one that we should all be privy to.

For those interested in helping me to reopen CAC files, contact me directly at:
