Cartoon Saturday

Thirty-three miners trapped inside a Chilean mine since August 5 have been told that they could be stuck underground for as long as four months; a lead investigator and another official investigating the massacre of 72 migrants in northern Mexico are missing; half a billion eggs have now been recalled in the latest salmonella scare (if an egg is recalled, does it get put back into the chicken for repair?); Faux News commentator Glenn Beck is organizing a rally on the National Mall, saying he is "reclaiming the civil rights movement;" and the Administration is "weighing a fresh effort at engagement" with prosperous and peace-loving North Korea, demonstrating the power of hope over experience.

Thank goodness for Cartoon Saturday, your breath of fresh air in the miasma of current events.

Young Danae is going to go a long way. Too bad there's nothing waiting for her when she gets there...

I thought about getting a face-lift at one time, but the doctor told me I couldn't afford a large enough crane...

At this time of year, there are two kinds of door-to-door salesmen: those that peddle candidates for office and those that peddle religion. You have to love this twist on the issue...

I guess I'm not the only one with ink-related problems...

At last ... someone has found a new approach to anti-virus software...

And finally, although the Secretary of Defense is looking to get rid of a lot of contractors, there may still be opportunities out there for us in other segments of the economy...

Well, our vacation is over and the new work week looms ahead, but at least we have the weekend to try to ease back into reality. Actually, it's less "easing back into" than "being dragged kicking and screaming into," but that's not important now.

Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.

The day before school started, I said to Grace: "Where did the Summer go?" Her reply: "It ran screaming away from us". Enjoy your weekend. I am thankful for nice weather and not a lot on the "to do" list this weekend.
