Cartoon Saturday

Tiger Woods has learned a valuable lesson about where he keeps his putter; five so-called "Americans" have been arrested in Pakistan, claiming to be "...of the opinion that a jihad must be waged against the infidels for the atrocities committed by them against Muslims around the world;" a 98-year-old woman has been indicted in the murder of her 100-year-old nursing home roommate; a beauty queen from Argentina died after complications arising from silicone injections to firm up her backside; and actress-activist Angelina Jolie has taken President Obama to task for not doing more to help people in Sudan...of course, he has been a bit busy trying to do more to help people here at home, but that's not important right now.

Cartoon Saturday is here to help you cope...and since we need a lot of coping right now, today will be a Cartoon Saturday extended version. Think of it as an early Christmas gift from ol' Bilbo.

Since health care is so much on everyone's mind, I thought a few relevant cartoons might be in order today. Non-traditional medical practices like acupuncture are becoming more common...and can, in some cases, be had at varying price levels....

Or from non-traditional practitioners...

The cost of good health care is always a concern...

Even for elective treatments...

You hear some really amazing rhetoric (if I can shamelessly abuse the term) lately from people who ought to engage their brains before wagging their tongues. I loved this Mike Peters cartoon, which applies ...

On to other topics...I am, as you know, a lifelong fan of radio, and still think it's a medium superior to television. But the brainless bozoheads of talk radio are doing their best to ruin it. This cartoon says it all ...

Seems like nobody at the fringe elements of the political spectrum is interested in seeking common ground nowadays ...

There's an app for everything ...

And, finally, a cartoon that says what I've always believed about the financial management industry and the silly talking heads who flack for it ...

Time now to gird my economic loins for a day of Christmas shopping, housecleaning, decorating, and general fun. I can't wait for Monday, so I can go back to work and relax.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

The Mike Peters cartoon reminds me of a bumper sticker I saw the other day - 'Hate is not a family value'.

Angelina Jolie needs to be put down or at least a pin stuck in her botoxed lips
