The scholarly Harvey Pekar: Australia's The Age profiles Harvey Pekar, who stopped in Melbourne as part of his world tour:

"I don't think I'm a typical American. For one thing, I'm fairly scholarly, I do a lot of reading. I'm not at all nationalistic like many Americans are. I think what the United States is doing in Iraq is just crazy and dangerous. I'm glad I live in America and not some country where everyone is starving. But when you elect a guy as stupid as George Bush, you've got to wonder about the electorate."
