Cartoon Saturday

A woman remains in in critical condition after being mauled by her friend's pet chimpanzee; Socks, the pet cat of former President Bill Clinton and his family, has been put to sleep; Zimbabwe's cholera epidemic is getting worse; US auto makers are asking for billions of dollars in additional loans in lieu of building cars people actually want to buy; unemployment is still high and going higher; and one of the most-watched YouTube videos this week is of a fight in the yard of a Wisconsin middle school.

Aren't you glad Cartoon Saturday is here to help you get over the bad news?

Season Eight of "Dancing with the Stars" is only a few weeks away! I'm ready...

It's wonderful to watch our grandchildren grow and develop and acquire new skills...

I guess I shouldn't feel so bad about my foot problems...

Global warming, global schwarming...it's cold out there! ...

It's interesting how new gadgets can be made more user-friendly and easy to understand (except for video recorders, of course)...

And finally, go ahead and admit that you really knew, deep down, that this is the way the financial management industry actually looks at us...

Got more to worry about? Don't worry - Cartoon Saturday will be back next week to help you get through it. Until then, though, you're on your own.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

I loved the speculation that happened after as to "why" the chimp mauled the lady. Maybe it's because she wore her different that day. Maybe it's because she was holding a suffed animal. Maybe it's because his owner gave him a anidepressant. Maybe it's because the chimp was an adult male. Ummm people.... the chimp went APE-SHIT. Period. End of story.
