Cartoon Saturday

Police in Missouri have arrested a sixth member of a family under investigation for allegations of child sexual abuse; five Guantanamo Bay detainees with alleged ties to the 9/11 conspiracy, including accused mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, will be tried in a civilian court in New York City; the Army's Inspector General has ordered an investigation into operations at Arlington National Cemetery after questions arose about apparently improper burials; and drug giant Pfizer announced that it would pull 1,400 jobs out of New London, Connecticut, within two years and move most of them to another location as a cost-cutting measure - after benefiting from a 2005 Supreme Court decision that allowed the city to seize private property to facilitate private economic development.

Aren't you glad you have Cartoon Saturday to take your mind off the madness?

Many artists complain about the proliferation of bootleg copies of their work being sold without proper compensation to them. I suspect the problem has been going on a lot longer than we think ...

Earlier this week I spent an entire day on the daunting challenge of cleaning away the vast mountains of stuff cluttering up my study. I really understand this cartoon...

My father was fond of putting a little spin on the stories he read to us, and I sometimes do the same thing when reading to my grandchildren. How about the story in which the cow jumped almost over the moon...?

Speaking of reading to your children, is it right to tell them stories that are just too terrifying?

How might the classic Western High Noon have been different had it been filmed today?

And who might have starred in it?

That's it for this week's edition of Cartoon Saturday. Hope it's helped you get over the trauma of another week. If not, well, come back next week at this time and we'll try it again.

Have a good day. Enjoy your weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

Maybe if that other cowboy would have shot Text Ritter when he had the chance we wouldn't be dodging texting driver today.

The Kelo thing reeealy pisses me off. I didn't know that was happening. Just more coorporate scum doing their thing.

Oh, and also were trying to raise bail money for John.
