Yes, some people are too fanatic, either in loving or in hating Don
and his work. (Sometimes they can even be funny as readers of
a Finnish comics newsgroup know, but that is beside the point.)
I didn't take Øyvind for one, I assumed that his sigh was about
the fight that might start once again and not about Per's opinions.

You are also right about that we need lots of different artist with
different styles.

Well, jokes are a part of a story, some of Don's stories are very
funny, and you don't have to be a donaldist to understand the jokes.
By the way, do your friends appreciate, for example, Van Horn
stories as something special, then? Or is it that they think that
no one is anything special?

Really? Do you mean that they are the only artists mentioned
in covers or that there are no articles, news items or anything
about other artists? If it's the latter I have to say: Huh! I think
that is very strange.

Winnie the Pooh is my great guru.
