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.

Speaking of Money, Let's Not Speak of Money


And in an unrelated matter, today is the birthday of Warren G. Harding, who coincidentally was born in 1865 and was elected President on this day in 1820. I don't suggest we try to draw any conclusions from it, especially since pundits are frantically drawing conclusions from just about everything else this last weekend before what will be, no matter what happens, an historic election. Suffice it to say that Harding's election was a present for him, but not for the country.

Hey I remember that name. Malcolm Gladwell in his book Blink refers to the "warren harding error" as the flawed process by which people make decisions. A fascinating read... almost as good as Dan Ariely's Predictably Irrational... (and equally unpredictable!) LOL Good cartoon John... the confounded look says it all.

Thanks, Jean. I'll have to check that out, especially since right now everyone's talking about the possible "Bradley effect." which refers to the former African-American Mayor of Los Angeles, Tom Bradley who was defeated for Governor of California even though the polls had shown him far ahead. The belief is that a lot of people didn't want to admit to the pollsters that they weren't voting for him because of his race.

Wow... can it really happen in this modern (supposedly enlightened) day and age? Exactly how old are we? *sigh*
