Today's Washington's Birthday cartoon is a revision of yesterday's President's Day toon, which I've been mercilessly banging away at on the cartoon anvil. Thank goodness George the first (our George) made his mark or I'd be short a new toon for today. It's a hopelessly eclectic and failed cartoon, but so strange I almost like it.
Suicide is the fruit of the greatest despondency. All politics aside, we certainly pray for Hunter Thompson's friends and family and wish them comfort during their time of grief, which, because of the traumatizing nature of the act they may never completely see an end to in this life. Those debating the cost of a similar exit should pause and consider the legacy of guilt and suffering their actions would leave to others, especially surviving children.
