The cartoon segue

I’m putting this book together, and, much like Robert Altman’s filming of “M.A.S.H.”, it appears to be a jumbled mess with seemingly zero connection between jokes, auto-bio, and fiction. But that’s where the segues come in. As Altman used the loudspeaker announcements to tie everything together, I will be using the cartoon segue, a strip to ease the transition from my personal musings to, in this case, my fictional story “One Day in 1978”. This is the first of many to come as I put this thing together.
