Hi,
I like your cartoons you posted although I think your or the cartoonist of the tea party is a bit confused.I think making cartoons like that don't help to pull people towards the liberal politicians as I don't think people are as unintelligent as liberals think they are. This is a big reason why tea party republicans are winning across the US. Just sayin.

Ha! Another great selection. I'm kinda hoping Christine O'Donnell will write a tell all potion book.

I'm always looking for good recipes!

Ha!

Joanna: Hi, and thanks for stopping in. And thanks for leaving me a comment. I'm not an American but living next door in Canada we, of course, are heavily influenced by US television, economic policies, news and politics.

Not unlike Canadians, I think many Americans are tired of the status quo when it comes to government. In the US much of that dissatisfaction has manifested itself in the creation and popularity of the Tea Party. It's happening, here, in Canada to a lesser degree.

But whether you're on the right or left - or even in the center - editorial cartoonists give us an opportunity to think about things from a bit of a different perspective and more often than not it results in the ability to laugh at ourselves. That's why I run them every Sunday. I think we need to laugh at ourselves more often.

What gets me about the Tea Party is it's made up largely of old white people who are sucking at the tits of social security and Medicare while railing against government. And they don't see any contradiction there whatsoever.

Jayne: There's a real distaste out there for the status quo, isn't there. CBS did a fascinating piece on the Tea Party a while back. It's here if you're interested...

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
