It was an extraordinarily emotional moment this fall when the Helen and Reynoud Duplessis hugged Scott Adams in gratitude for bringing them to Baltimore and helping them settle in a newly rehabbed rowhouse in West Baltimore. The Duplessis family was left homeless by Hurricane Katrina. I met the family in September, long after their harrowing journey fleeing New Orleans and living in shelters. When Reynoud Duplessis bought one-way tickets to Baltimore for his wife, Helen, and their six children, he didn't know what the future would bring.

We had wanted to check in with Scott Adams by e-mail. It turns out this demonstrated all the creativity and innovation of a boss in his comic strip, "Dilbert." Everyone wants to interview Adams by e-mail, especially now that his latest book, "The Dilbert Principle" is on the nonfiction best-seller list, where it has remained now for almost two months. (Not to be confused with "Still Pumped from Using the Mouse," a paperback best-seller of Dilbert cartoons.)Besides, Adams said, he figured out that reporters who interviewed him by e-mail were making him do their job, which directly violates a key tenet of "The Dilbert Principle" -- "Avoidance of work [is]

DUBLIN, Calif. -- We are approaching Nerdvana, as Dogbert would say. Scott Adams climbs the stairs into his study, the hub of a thriving revenge-of-the-nerds empire.It is here, in an office just slightly bigger than a cubicle, that Mr. Adams transforms tales of idiotic bosses and meaningless empowerment teams into humor, and thus into the life of Dilbert, the chinless comic-strip hero to millions of cubicle-confined workers.Powerless, socially awkward, doomed to work for inept superiors, Dilbert the overweight engineer slogs through corporate life in the '90s.

He's been an extra in his own comic before -- but he's never appeared as himself until this week. Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert, the popular comic strip that lampoons business office life, headlined his strip Monday under the title "Note from the Author." Adams, a rather pointy-headed comic character himself, proceeded to buckle under fan pressure and tell the following "unfunny" office joke: "If you can't connect to the network, send a trouble report by e-mail." The author's head then pokes out of the corner of the strip and says, "Happy?"

The new ABC midseason sitcom, "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place," opened last week with one of the main characters, a woman in her 20s, complaining to two male friends about how much she hates her job."I have to put on heels, which I hate, and go out in the real world and sell chemicals, which I hate, while you two knuckleheads get to play golf, which I also hate.""Yeah, but you make like a bazillion dollars," one of the guys says."Selling my soul! Look, if I close this deal today, I make commission on 500 gallons of toxic cleaner I'm selling to some oil rig. So, I can enjoy a weekend at the cape while killing off all sea life between here and Guam.
