Perhaps Obama should have set McChrystal and Tony LightCrude afloat together in a very small raft in the Gulf of Mexico.

Boom-Boom: Tony LightCrude. I love it! You may have something there.

While under Bush Gen. Petraeus was criticized and ostracized by every democrat in government, including Obama. Now? Oy vey! Obama picks him to succeed McChrystal and he's suddenly wonderful!

His pension is protected and he will soon be a senior analyst on FOX...

Great funnies, especially the Toy Story/Oil spill one.

That's my fave this week. Although the butt stamp on on McChrystal's butt is good one too.

Still makes me snort. A lot.

Steve: A-ha! Life will imitate art...or at least a political cartoon.

Quirks: I loved the Toy Story one, too. "To infinity..."

Love the comics this week. LOL at McChrystal with his foot in his mouth.

Leeuna: I'm surprised the cartoonist didn't depict him with both feet in his mouth!

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
