Cartoons on murder, a shark, and an octopus.

Cartoons on murder, a shark, and an octopus.
More popular political cartoons for your enjoyment. Caption: Jury convicts Ingmar Guandique, illegal immigrant and MS-13 gang member, of murdering Chandra Levy. Mike Lester has a super-casual style, quite the opposite of old time editorial cartoons! This take on the Chandra Levy trial is a pretty straightforward idea, but I included it because I agreed ...

9-11.
Famous Falling Man photo from 9/11. Apparently the photographer made several photos of this man, one of which shows him aiming straight down, like an arrow.

(Is that show still on the air?) Discussing in strikingly personal terms his order to escalate the war in Afghanistan, President Obama said ...

Veteran’s Day cartoon for War Dogs, too.

Veteran's Day cartoon for War Dogs, too.
The slayings at Fort Hood came very close to Veteran’s Day, so I think some cartoonists broke out their sad pens early. I did a cartoon on something worse than Ft. Hood, which I’ll put up later this week. Meanwhile, tomorrow is Veteran’s Day, so… Since I just started doing op-ed cartoons in February for ...
