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. For mugs, t-shirts, and other products visit my gift shop at* (be sure to include the *).

The Beat Goes On.... And On

To sum up: the various twists and turns of the national soap opera that is our presidential campaign is endlessly fascinating, but the bloviating is out of control. It's like the sports pundits yammering for weeks on end about who's going to win the Super Bowl. In the end it's all meaningless. And the cost of it is not just staggering, but literally unconscionable. As Jimmy Kimmel said: "Mitt Romney spent millions of his own money before getting out of the race. I'm not going to be president either and it didn't cost me a penny." These people want change? Just think of the change that could be brought about with all that money! But at least our country's growing up a little bit. If Sen. Clinton doesn't win it won't be because of her gender.

I’m not so certain that race and gender will not play some part in this election; perhaps not the deciding factor but a factor nonetheless. If Hillary decides to dump Bill because of all the gaffes he’s made, a real test of whether or not America is truly gender free would be this Democratic ticket: Hillary for president, Monica Lewinsky for V.P.

News from the US has taken a back seat this week as the media jockey for ringside seats at Wednesday's "apology". So I'll be watching here for updates...

I hope Hill and Bill sort it out... or we might find ourselves barrack-ing for the other side! ;-/

Cool cartoon John! :-)

Yes Lee... for those who may be interested... tomorrow is the day that the Australian Parliament says "sorry" to the stolen generations. The stolen generations are the aboriginal children who were taken from their families during the past 200 years by well meaning people who believed them to be better off with an education and a roof over their heads instead of living in poverty in their communities. The ones who were taken against their will are now seeking apology... and compensation from the australian tax payer. What this will ultimately cost is anyone's guess. Thanks for asking...
