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 *).

On the Other Hand

You may have noticed that in all my posts (700, as of today) I've never once spoken about conservatives and liberals. The terms may have had validity once, in a simpler time, but it's become a mindless shorthand, an intellectual laziness that allows people to avoid any substantive discussion of complex issues, to the point where all that's left of substantial debate is meaningless sputtering. I prefer to divide people into those whose ideas are so set into concrete they cannot change, and those willing to constantly have their own most cherished positions challenged by new arguments.
