Gumption for Assumption

People ask me, "Where did Clipboard Girl come from?" She is not meant to be a particular person, but she personifies the type of bureaucracy that prevents good things from happening. An example is when the Jones Act prevented foreign ships from helping with the BP oil spill. "Why aren't they helping? Oh, it's because of a rule." That kind of thing bugs me, and the comics with her is my revenge.

I immediately thought of academic bureaucracy...but the oil spill works too ;-)

Oh, trust me -- sometimes I'm thinking about THAT, too!
