Discussions of war, peace, Miss Teen SC, and of course, cartoons!

With all the trouble in the world, its nice sometimes to have music that reaches deep within you so that you may have some solace, new ideas, new energy, and some peace of mind. That music may have some answers outlined-words like "revolution," "impeach," "stop the war," may be bandied about. Sometimes though, music doesn't have any of the answers to the questions in life that you seek. Like this little ditty from Hugh Laurie, called "All We Gotta Do." Man, this is deep!



Amid all the hubbub about Miss Teen South Carolina, we forget that there have been other examples of difficulty speaking during other pageants. This contestant from Hawaii stands out. Did I mention she's from Hawaii?

Poor Miss Teen South Carolina. She's had a really hard time explaining herself! With all the commotion, no one has bothered to think about her parents. Here they are during the fateful question posed to their daughter.



Ha ha! Jimmy Kimmel had a great technical breakdown of what poor Caitlin said.



I love these cartoonists! This first cartoon is by a guy named John McPherson, whose type of one-panel style strip suggests Far Sidian comparisons, and I do believe he is probably influenced by Gary Larson's work. He does not tend to do as much animal kingdom themes as did Larson, it seems. His work can stand alone-its some funny stuff! He does some good stuff! Here's a funny one from a few days ago!

I absolutely love Bizarro! (by Dan Piraro) This guy's sense of humor is so acute and and well...bizarre! My type of stuff! (from the Seattle Post Intelligencer-9-1-07)

My wife just came into the room and asked if we could put the news on to see what is going on in "The Iraq"!

LOL! I kinda feel bad for her,(Miss Teen S.C.) but it might end up being a windfall for her!

American Scot: Yeah I know-i feel bad for her too-i am not a good public speaker at all so i can sympathize with her. Maybe she can turn this into something positive-wirte a book about how she overcame this-hard to tell right now-she really getting hit from the media right now!
