Cartoonist’s Dilemma

What’s better to draw about, something people care about? Or something people should care about it? Guess which one pays better.

  • I’m stumped too, Ted.

    And I don’t have the problem of trying to make a living trying to introduce an unthinking mob to the mostly unseen (unknown?) social realities (as Zizek played on Rumsfeld’s missing “Unknown Knowns”).

    I also appreciate the associated problems of allowing posts and also not wanting to be seen as endorsing them for whatever reason.

    All I’ve got to say to you are P Floyd’s words:

    “Shine on you crazy diamond.
    Well you wore out your welcome with random precision…
    Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner, and shine!”

    I enjoy your confrontational strips a lot more than the nice, easy pap that’s so much of the media now. I like that, even now, as the whole exercise winds down and gets an F for futile, there are still people who are bearing witness to the lunacy. The dems chased away the progressives, kneecapped the progressive candidate, gave us a pairing right up there in desirability with a cup of phlegm and a bowl of rusty fishhooks, and now we’ve got an imbecile driving the last nail in Biden’s coffin by destroying the last chance for the wishy-washy democrats to possibly have even a fart’s chance in a typhoon of salvaging the midterms. It will all be absolutely hilarious to those of us who realize the last lifeboat’s already disembarked and the bar’s free for those of us who are left on the sinking ship. Have a double. Here’s to absent friends and long ago. The future’s gonna be like running through a narrow corridor filled with razor blades. So let’s remember who to blame: Hillary Clinton, the dnc elites, Nancy Pelosi’s cadaver, all the candidates who knew they didn’t have a prayer but ran anyway to stop Bernie Sanders at the command of their owners, etc., etc., ad infinitum, ad astra, forever, and ever.
