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 *).

Greyed Expectations

Yesterday's ubiquitous security presence in Washington, much of it unseen, reminds me of my neighbor who worked for years in the federal building in Los Angeles. Her office was down the hall from the local Secret Service branch office. The day Ronald Reagan was shot my neighbor had heard the news and went down the hall to find out more. The Secret Service guys looked up from their poker game surprised. Nobody had told them.

Hi John. Having a security presence is a bit like having a lock. Locks only keep out the honest. It would be humanly impossible to secure such a crowd as we saw yesterday. Let's face it... if someone wanted to do harm they could. But who would want to?

A fresh breeze blew into town yesterday and the whole world can feel it.

I've enjoyed catching up on your recent cartoons. They make me smile :-)
