Cartoon Saturday

An athlete from Georgia was killed during a training run on the luge track at the Vancouver Olympic games; former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized for a heart problem; the news just keeps on getting better for Toyota owners; "Snowmageddon," the fierce winter storms that have battered the country during February, may have cost the economy between 90,000 and 150,000 jobs, except for snowplow operators; and in Pennsylvania, a 12 year old boy has been charged with murder after shooting his father's pregnant girl friend in the head.

If you can find it under all the snow, Cartoon Saturday will help you make sense of it all.

Ah, if only it were true...

Will digital artists someday wear tacky plastic wrist bands that say "WWRD" ... "What Would Rembrandt Do?" ...

Ah, yes...an election year. You may as well put your concepts of reality in a safety deposit box and reclaim them in another year or so ...

Mike and Claudia have written and commented eloquently on the personal impact of corporate downsizing...read the comments, too...

This is another one of those cartoons you may have to look at twice (remember the one about battling the knight in shining armor from two weeks ago?), but it's worth it...

And finally, it's beginning to look like we'll have six more months of winter rather than six more weeks. Time to start shooting groundhogs...

Well, another week has gone by and the snow is gradually melting...just in time for our latest snowstorm, predicted for this coming Monday...the day to which Agnes's flight to Germany has been re-booked for the FOURTH time.

All you can do is shrug.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

Poor groundhog! Though I have to say that one made me LOL the most. Try to have a good weekend.

You would be proud of me, Bilbo. I got the joke about "throwing the book at the pervert" within 2 seconds. Ha, ha.

I LOL at the first one. I want to be the bluetooth fairy. I don't care what stigma comes with it.

And I thought the THIRD time was a charm. Maybe Agnes's charm has a multiplier. 3 x ?

Wv: conar - Maybe you could get Agnes on one of these flights.
