Comic Books

As it gets closer and closer to election day, I'm finding it harder and harder to only do one post a day. Things just seem to present themselves to me on silver platter.

While wanting to be relevant, I also like to retain the 'stuff & nonsense' this blog is about - for the most part. But I'm also finding that time is ticking away where I haven't even done my Record of the Month or my Shopping with Blobby segments. Time's a-wastin'.

Chop Chop!

So for today, since it is Sunday - I bring you something from the Sunday Funnies: Doonesbury

As timely as it is, and as funny as it is, the subject is already a bit tiresome - no? It has become apparent that McCain as no other talking point and "Joe" is brought up more in his conversation than She Who Must Not Be Named.

I had to pull this from the Washington Post - and what I found most interesting about it is, that in the Plain Dealer, they cut the first two panels.

I am used to the PD dumbing-down the NYT articles. Yes, they change as many polysyllabic words as possible and cut a two page article in the Times down to five paragraphs in the PD. We ain't done got no edjucation here!

....but comic editing? This is a new one on me. I guess I will have to start reading these on-line too - just to see what I'm missing. For all I know, maybe someone in Apartment 3-G had an abortion!
