In case you're curious about where this blog got its name, "Salamasond" is the infamous island on which Dr. Seuss' Yertle the Turle once ruled as an overly ambitious dictator. Dr. Seuss has always been one of my favorite authors/illustrators, primarily because of how he was able to take such powerful, important, salient issues and present the liberal view of them in a format that was accessible to everyone from 2 to 92.

If you're interested in Dr. Seuss, PBS has a great show about Theodore Geisel's life and work.
