Cartoon Saturday


The hits just keep on coming ...

According to a story broken by ProPublica this past week, the Trump Organization has ordered dozens of 12-inch replicas of the presidential seal to be used as tee markers at Trump golf courses - a violation of laws governing use of the seal and an abuse of the presidency for personal profit; a former Russian spy and his daughter were deliberately poisoned by a nerve agent in England last weekend, according to British police; top White House economic advisor Gary Cohn resigned this week after Donald Trump ignored his advice and announced the imposition of new tariffs on imported steel and aluminum; former porn star Stormy Daniels has sued Donald Trump, arguing that the nondisclosure agreement she signed before the 2016 election over an alleged affair with Mr Trump is not valid because Trump never signed it; and as North Korea signals a willingness to talk and Donald Trump expresses a willingness to meet with Kim Jong-un, a State Department gutted by the Trump administration has few people remaining with the experience to provide advice on negotiating with the notoriously difficult North Koreans.

This week, because we need to calm down a bit, here's a collection of cartoons about books, reading, and great literature ...

I think he'll be waiting a while ...


It's always good to look on the positive side ...


We found out about this in NoVa last weekend, when the windmageddon storm knocked out power in our area for anywhere from a few hours to several days ...


He's lucky she didn't call the police ...


I know how hard it can be to put down a really good book ...


Yep, pretty much ...


Ba-dum, TISS! ...


Yes, that would be a rare book ...


It's all in how you look at it ...


A letter by any other color ...


And there you have it - a collection of more-or-less literary cartoons for this weekend.

Here in NoVa, we're sitting tight and waiting to see if we'll get slammed by the latest winter storm. At least if the worst comes to the worst, we'll be able to stay warm under a few feet of Agnes's beautiful homemade quilts.

Have a good day and a great weekend, and stay warm. More thoughts tomorrow, on Poetry Sunday.

It first looked like Romeo was casting a huge shadow of a menacing bird.

There's more than one scarlet letter.

The Godot one was especially funny!

Romeo can be a bit creepy. Great cartoons!

Very enjoyable! Especially liked A and B scarlet letters.

A good choice of topic - this weekend was the 10th annual Tucson Festival of Books. It's now the third-largest such festival in the nation, according to the promoters. About 130,000 people were estimated to have attended.
