When the news is boring, I cry.

When the news is boring, I cry.
I mean, really, who didn’t know this was going to happen? NO WAY was any government going to stop. Their last minute drama failed. Such a boondoggle. (Is that the right word? It should be.) But at the link is a  fellow who believes the government COULD have shut down, however. Sometimes I wish I ...

Editorial cartoons for LA Times, April 2010.

Editorial cartoons for LA Times, April 2010.
Last week Joel Pett included a cartoon from Pulitzer Prize 2010 winner Mark Fiore in his selection of cartoons for the LA Times. He had to go back 10 years to find a cartoon by Fiore. This is because Fiore is an animator now, not a cartoonist, and hasn’t done cartoons for years. Is the ...

Insurance companies suck. But you already knew that.

Usually I’m a capitalist, all for anyone who wants to make money, anyhow. Let the strongest one win. But not with health insurance. It’s ...

Dow Jones cartoon.

Dow Jones cartoon.
The Dow went over 10,000. Good news, for those who had the money to invest! At least, that’s what I thought, when I drew this cartoon last week. But even when I was drawing it, although I like the stock markets, think it’s very nicely capitalistic (although not very nice to most people this year), ...
