Cartoon Saturday

Agriculture Department official Shirley Sherrod, who was forced to resign from her job because of a deliberately incomplete and misleading report about a supposedly-racist speech she gave, is now taking the salute at a world-class apology parade; someone needs to send whining international spoiled brat North Korea to time-out; 226 school teachers are being fired in Washington, DC for poor performance (too bad the Schools Chancellor doesn't have oversight of Congress); a Republican candidate for the Senate in Tennessee has endorsed the possibility of secession from the United States; and Mexican authorities have found at least 38 bodies, probably a result of the ongoing drug wars, in nine mass graves.

Have a good day. Here's an oak-leaf geranium for you (look it up).

More thoughts tomorrow.

Ooooooh, rose PETALS. I knew something didn't seem right about that. I just couldn't put my finger on it. Because it hurt when I did it.

Tennessee can go but only if they take California and Alaska with them..or at least just Sarah Palin and her freaky family.
