Cartoon Saturday

An explosion caused by indoor pyrotechnics at a nightclub in central Russia killed 103 people and injured at least 140 others, eighty-five of whom remain in critical condition; a fire at a karaoke bar and discotheque in Medan, in Indonesia's North Sumatra province, killed at least 20 people on Friday; four murderers armed with guns and grenades stormed a mosque in Rawalpindi, slaughtering dozens of people - most of them children; and - surprise! - as new laws intended to limit abusive practices by credit card companies take effect, those companies are compensating by raising rates already averaging 14.9%.

And I didn't even mention Congress.

Whatever would you do without Cartoon Saturday?

I'm a week behind with this one, but better late than never...

And while we're on the general topic of ... uh ... fowl cartoons ...

Our latest weather forecast calls for rain changing one to three inches of snow later today. Gotta get ready ...

This one's for John, because you just can't be too careful ...

The awful truth behind the business headlines ...

And finally, if you don't get this one, just wait. It'll sink in ...

And no, Mike, "osmosis" is not what Dorothy was treated for when she came back to Kansas.

That's Cartoon Saturday for this week. Christmas is fast approaching, so why not join all the people at the shopping malls today, looking at the stuff they'd buy if their savings hadn't been looted and Congress could quit with the cheap political posturing and do something to bring down unemployment.

As fantasies go, I guess that's a good one.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

I took me longer to get the Dorothy line than the cartoon. Remember I was a chemistry geek too. I used to osmosisize all the time.
