Comments from the week of Dec 12 2004

Ramblings for Saturday-
I'd like to thank Janet Parshall
for including one of my recent cartoons in her current newsletter. Later tonight I should have the image posted in our Cafepress store (thanks also for the plug!) Stacy at E-involved is the culprit behind all of this....

Ramblings for Friday-
Men's News Daily has been hacked by Brazilian anarchists and is still on it's haunches. A few visits from friendlies once they return to form would be much appreciated by webmaster Mike. -Dan

Ramblings for Wednesday-
I'll be posting photographs of recent portraits later this evening (really truly) along with a cartoon I've drawn for Stacy Harp at e-involved. I've also moved the cartoons below this dialogue box to the 'past month' page (actually the past two months page) to save a little loading time. Those of you dialing in with a 28k modem probably won't mind a few less toons-Dan

Ramblings for Tuesday-
Today's cartoon is the first in a lengthy series addressing anti-Christian bigotry and repression in our public school system, which has become the dominant theme this holiday season. If you don't care for civil rights oriented Christmas cartoons, you may wish to return in a few weeks.

The assault against religious freedom continues this holiday season with even more cases of public schools pronouncing as illegal any form of Christian free expression. Most if not all of these cases (which have increased dramatically since the President's re-election last month) will be won by parents (as has been the history) but only after prolonged and expensive legal defenses waged by willing citizens. These battles fought over the rights of children to dress up in Christmas plays as angels, or to perform instrumental
music for their peers and parents, is forming a deep and wide foundation of support for a future 'Religious Freedom' amendment to the United States Constitution, which, written correctly, may
enjoy the broad based nonpartisan support which promoters of theTraditional Marriage Amendment found so elusive. Democrats would be wise to hop aboard this train, as it leads directly into the soul of the Middle American vote. Remember, you heard it here first, folks. Well, maybe not first.

Today's cartoon is a revision of yesterday's toon. Things change quickly around here. The design is a take off on Mel Brook's High
, which was itself a homage to Alfred Hitchcock. Mel Brooks, one of my heroes. I forgive him for the Spanish Inquisition bit in History of The World, Part II. Mel served as a Corporal in the Army during World War II, and while in France he and his comrades accidentally severed communications for the ninth army when they discovered a hidden German arms cache and used the white insulation caps on nearby telephones poles for target practice. Mel once said that the best way to deal with a bully was to make fun of him. Of course, the very best thing to do is to forgive him...right after you're done making fun. Second to beer, humor is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
