Cartoon Saturday

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is playing he-said-she-said with the CIA over the issue of waterboarding; in Georgia, a man who shot a fellow college student three times will be allowed to graduate and serve no jail time as part of a plea deal; General Motors plans to cut 1,100 dealerships as part of its efforts to stay afloat; the potential impact of melting of Antarctic ice sheets may be less than predicted...but you may want to invest in beachfront property in Ohio, anyhow; and a wheel fell off an airliner landing at Buffalo, NY - from the same type of airplane flown by the same airline that had a fatal crash at the same airport three months ago.

Quick! - bring on Cartoon Saturday before we all go crazy!

With the approach of the 40th high school reunion, I've been thinking back to how much things have changed in the last four decades...


If I had the money, I'd probably buy a new car. Maybe one of those hybrids I've heard so much about. But then again, maybe I'll wait until the technology is more mature...

With apologies to John, who loves the ballpark experience...

And speaking of those hot dogs we all know and love (didn't someone once say that people who love sausage and respect the law should never watch either one being made?)...

And while we're on the topic of food, how many of you have one of those office microwaves that are lined with the exploded and baked-on remnants of lunches past? ...

Finally, speaking of the office, have you ever been in a meeting like this one? ...

It's good to be back home after a week spent in blistering hot San Antonio, Texas. Now, if I only had a nine-day weekend to catch up on everything else...

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

i only eat hotdogs at baseball games b/c that's just what you do there. however, i would never, never, NEVER want to know how they are made or what they are made of. i would rather remain happily naive and enjoy the occasional sporting-event-related hot dog.
