Cartoons, cartoons, cartoons.... John Crowther's Cartoon Odyssey

I think of it as The Fool's Journey. I've been asked who the "fool" is. It's me, but in the classical sense of the court jester. Only the fool was allowed to tell the king of his follies. All cartoons are available as prints or originals, framed or unframed, through my website or e-mail.

The American Pass Time

I enjoy sports, but let's face it, the whole idea of a professional sport is lame unless you remember it's not really a sport at all, but entertainment, and as such is no more lame, say, than Gigli. Still, I have to admit that I enjoy going to the ballpark to watch big league baseball. there's something relaxed and, well, unimportant about it, time out of time. I have the distinction, along with several thousand other spectators, to have been in Dodger Stadium the night in 1999 that Fernando Tatis of St. Louis hit back to back grand slam home runs off the same pitcher, Chan-ho Park, in the same inning, a feat so unlikely that it was the one and only time it's ever happened in the major leagues. I was sitting right behind the Dodger dugout, and someone nearby me exclaimed loudly, "we've just watched history being made. " "No," I answered, "we just watched trivia being made."
