Introduction Author/illustrator Mark Zepezauer was raised amidst the idyllic semiconductor farms of Silicon Valley, the son of immigrants from Milwaukee and Chicago. After graduating from UC Santa Cruz, he worked for several newspapers in that community, creating the cartoon panel "US History Backwards." In 1989 he produced a limited edition art book, The Nixon Saga, now found in more than two museum collections (okay, just two). He moved to Arizona in 1993, publishing the Tucson Comic News, a monthly compendium of political cartoons and commentary, until 2000. He is the author of The CIA's Greatest Hits (1994), Boomerang! How Our Covert Wars Have Created Enemies Across the Middle East and Brought Terror to America (2003), and Take the Rich Off Welfare (2004). Zepezauer lives in Tucson with his splendid wife, two miraculous children, a goofball dog and two recalcitrant cats.
