This Week's Troubletown
Incredibly wordy, huh? Sometimes I think I should get rid of the pictures.
Okay, originally I was going to do a cartoon about how people always concentrate on the insignificant things. Torture, we worry about whether the color of the jumpsuits is demeaning. The world melts we worry about how gay weddings will make us feel. But then the NY Times did an article on the front page of the Week in Review section about how people are such dummies that they concentrate on insignificant things and ignore important things. That's when I knew that that angle was dead, but it brought to mind the solid week of AIG bonus news on every channel and the softball interview with war criminal Cheney. I also thought that in the cartoon Dick Cheney could be talking about how Obama wants to give Miranda rights to the fish. That didn't make it in. That woulda' been funny. Oh well, you can only do so much. I got up at five am this morning with only a fuzzy idea and my tongue was kinda fuzzy too.
Do you like commentary with This Week's Cartoon? Or should I just let the cartoon speak for itself? Some cartoonists say that their fans are hungry for more.
