Cartoon Saturday


We're halfway through July, and it's about time ...

James Holmes, who murdered 12 people in a Colorado movie theater in 2012, has been found guilty of 12 counts of first-degree murder; former president George H. W. Bush remains hospitalized after suffering an injury in a fall at his summer home in Kennebunkport, Maine; after a journey of nine years and 3 billion miles, the New Horizons spacecraft is sending back amazingly detailed pictures of the dwarf planet Pluto; four Marines were murdered on Thursday when a gunman attacked two military centers in Chattanooga, Tennessee; and the Federal Aviation Administration reported that lasers were pointed at 11 commercial airliners over New Jersey, which could have blinded the pilots and caused them to crash.

Because I'm really irritated about the economy today, our selection of theme cartoons deals with matters economic ...

I think this is the right angle ...


Good observation ...


Hey, it works for them ...


This sounds like the middle of the pay period at my house ...


So does this ...


Yep ...


I think it was comedian Paula Poundstone who said that after taxes, the wages of sin was more like a just a tired feeling ...


Turning to a few random topics to round things out, there are approaches to helping you travel more comfortably by air ...


The scientific method has its problems ...


And finally, even the animals are going high-tech nowadays ...


Today promises to be an good day, as Agnes and I will be meeting our friend and fellow blogger Kathy and her husband for a visit to the Smithsonian American Art Museum, followed by a nice dinner in downtown DC. And then tomorrow we'll get to spend the morning with the local grandchildren.

Life is good!

Have a good day. Come back tomorrow for Poetry Sunday.

Nowadays the wages of sin require moonlighting. And Delta uses little planes with even more crowded seats for those short routes.

A lot of nail heads were hit with the economic cartoons.

The free market capitalists and the socialists don't have cute curly tails, though.
Sounds like a great weekend!
