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 www.zazzle.com/jcrowtherart* (be sure to include the *).

Chump Change

Just to put things into perspective. If a printer turns out a one hundred dollar bill once every second, he'll print a million dollars in a little less than three hours. To print 700 billion, however, will take him 220 years. I think it was the late Sen. Everett Dirksen who once said, "a billion here, a billion there, pretty soon you're talking about real money."

Sen. Everett Dirksen was said to be the greatest orator in the Senate. Hubert Humphrey said of him once that Dirksen had made the finest speech advocating isolationism Humphrey had ever heard on the floor of the senate; he also made the finest speech denouncing it.
