    Wow, Penny Arcade was honored by the state of Washington yesterday:
    Copy of the resolution on the state site here.

    PAX is the largest gaming convention in North America now, and it's usually held in Washington. And Child's Play has raised about $4.5 million so far.

    Penny arcade? One of the most popular sites on the whole internet, the group that single-handedly legitimized online comic artists against syndicated artists? Or do you mean just the recognition.

    I hear that Tim Buckley's a jerk though (That's just what I've heard, I still read his comics).
