Museum books at sub-museum prices, and other notes

I’m back from Comic-Con International: San Diego (me and about 100,000 other joyous geeks, egads). The fine folks from the Schulz Museum had a booth there once again, and a lot of folks were grabbing up a t-shirt that has Snoopy posing with Earl, the dog from the comic strip …
