Journal Journal: Man Fired for Posting 'Dilbert' Comic at Work

An Iowa man fired for posting a "Dilbert" comic strip at work that made fun of bosses is getting the last laugh -- with the help of "Dilbert's" creator.

In the fall, Dave Steward posted the comic strip on an office bulletin board at the Catfish Bend Casino in Iowa. In the comic, Dilbert asks, "Why does it seem as if most of the decisions in my workplace are made by drunken lemurs?"

Scott Adams, "Dilbert's" creator, got wind of Steward's predicament, and this week Adams launched a plotline for the strip that is very similar to Steward's plight.

Journal Journal: Wisconsin Boy Finds Wooly Mammoth Tooth A 3-year old Wisconsin boy found a rock that turned out to be a tooth from a 10,000 year old Wooly Mammoth. Turns out that his grandfather had found one 9 years earlier. Not bad for an afternoon of chasing squirrels at a family friend's property. Wish I had friends with wooly mammoth teeth in their backyard.
