Cartoon Saturday

Threatener-in-Chief Osama bin Laden has issued yet another threat, this time to France; in New York City, a juvenile justice counselor has been convicted of sexually abusing two female teens in his care; authorities in Germany have charged two doctors with negligent manslaughter after a German porn actress died following breast enlargement surgery; Democratic representative Steve Cohen of Tennessee struck a blow for sober judgment, reasoned debate and civility in government when he compared GOP charges that the government is taking over health care to lies spread by Nazis before the Holocaust; and legal executions in the United States may be delayed because the sole American manufacturer of an anesthetic widely used in lethal injections has announced that it will no longer produce the drug.

Just in time, Cartoon Saturday rides to your intellectual rescue.

Three-D, shmee-D ... I'm waiting for the next logical step in movie technology ...


And how about the next step in ensuring our safety and security ...


Did you ever wonder what happened after some of the great moments in cinematic history? ...


Nessa wanted me to include this one ...


Sometimes, you just need to look for the obvious explanation for your tech problems ...

I think I'd rather just be voted off the show, thank you very much ...


This one is so obvious that I can't imagine it took this long for someone to draw it ...


Our struggling Metro system here in Disneyland-on-the-Potomac is looking for new ways to raise funds to keep trains and stations in repair and passengers safe. One recently-floated idea is to sell corporate naming rights for the stations on the system. If it works for Metro, why wouldn't it work for cash-strapped families? ...


Great moments in merchandise returns ...

And finally, Shoe states the obvious ...

It looks like it's going to be a really cold weekend here in Northern Virginia ... no snow until around mid-week, but bitter cold. How cold is it going to be? Well, the lawyers are all standing around with their hands in their own pockets.

And that's cold.

Have a good day and a great weekend. More thoughts tomorrow.

I was going to tell you to get your Tsar outfit for next Friday. But then I saw this headline and thought better of it.

I really don't get the one with the donkey in the bed. Could you explain?
I'm serious by the way.
