3/24    Best commentary on the Schiavo clusterfuck evAR: -dans
        \_ No. Commentary is written in sentences and paragraphs.  Comics
           involve art, and graphically based humor.  This is neither.  It is
           in the same category as that fucking talking penguin.
           \_ you mean pokey the penguin?  i love pokey! - danh
              \_ i don't know his name. it's from This Modern World.  death to
                 the penguin!
                 \_ Tom Tomorrow >> the above crap
                    \_ tom tomorrow sucks ass.  He is neither a real cartoonist
                       nor a real editorialist.  He is a guy who uses
                       unspeakably shitty art to make simple minded points
                       using non-funny sarcasm.  he is an insult to
                       real cartoonists everywhere.
                       \_ wow, "unspeakably shitty art"? wtf is your problem?
                          no, more plausible is you hate the message. who is
                          a "real" cartoonist or "real" editorialist? you have
                          been classified as: a fucking idiot.
                          \_ Actually, I usually agree with his message.
                             Examples of real cartoonists would include
                             Trudeau, McGruder, Larson, Waterson, and Andy
                             Singer.  Editorialists are people who *write*
                             in *English*, in actual sentences and paragraphs.
                             Tomorrow is simply a shitty, no-talent hack who
                             sells his crap to people who like his message
                             so much that they have blinded themselves to his
                             lack of talent.
                             \_ Political cartoons are editorial in nature...
                                I'm not saying TT is so wonderful but his
                                art and his english sentences carry as much
                                weight as most other political blatherers out
                                there. How is
                                               \_ The only thing funny about
                                                  this is the liberal/author-
                                                  itarian implication that
                                                  people wouldn't voluntarily
                                                  follow traffic lights.
                                                  They most certainly would.
                                                  (think blackouts) -phuqm
                                any different? It's worse than most of TT.
                                Larson and Watterson are a completely different
                          \_ Michael Ramirez of the LA Times is a real
                             \_ Well, he's better than Tom Tommorow.  He
                                actually draws funny pictures.
                                \_ this one is pretty dang shitty:
            \_ Thank you oh great anonymous wanker who knows all of art,
               commentary, and humor.  A few suggestions to guarantee that you
               never let any wisdom taint your blessedly naive omnipotence.
               1) Avoid dictionaries.  Even the literal meaning of words can
                  be dangerous.
               2) Don't ever read {Understanding, Reinventing} Comics by Scott
               3) Don't ever enroll in a top notch Bachelor of Fine Arts
                  program.  You will have your ass handed to you on a platter.
               4) Don't ever enroll in a top notch Master of Fine Arts
                  program.  Your ass will be flambeed, and then handed to you
                  on platter.  This will be done in front of an audience as a
                  performance art piece, and filmed for posterity. -dans
        \_ As stupid as I think the whole Schiavo thing is, I'm really
           not sure what was supposed to be funny about these comics.
        \_ that's great
        \_ FUCKING LAME, don't waste your time reading it. The best jokes are
           quick and to the point, like The Far Side. This is neither.
           \_ There's no accounting for taste.

        this woman's case however the woman's living will is being ignored.
        She's not in a persistenet vegitative state nor is she comatose.  The
        granddaughter says  "She has glaucoma and now this heart problem, and
        who would want to live with disabilities like these?"  She's also

4/7     Watch popular conservative blog get it wrong on authenticity of
        Schiavo memo:
        The third possibility is that the memo is a Democratic dirty trick.
        At the moment, that looks most likely.  It is easy to picture how the
        document could have been constructed.  A Democratic staffer wants to
        put in some language that will sound authentic for a Republican memo.

3/31    You'd think a "liberal" media would be all over this.  As it is
        you have to do your own searching of various Texas newspapers to
        learn about Sun Hudson, the six month old boy who was put to
        death by a hospital, despite his mother pleading for his life.
        Sun Hudson had a fatal disease, but was alive and conscious when
        the hospital staff, following a law signed by George W Bush,

4/1     I don't get it.  How is the Schiavo case going to lead to more
        restrictive laws?  The vast majority of the public was against
        all the last-minute theatrics and interventions.  Or is this the
        New York Times being a bunch of hacks again? (not the liberal use
        of the phrase "may be") (

12/6    Lesson learned: don't talk about Monty Python on a date. Women just
        don't seem to get it.
        \_ You are dating the wrong women (for you) then. My sister-in-law
           loves it and yet I don't find it all that funny. It's not a
           gender thing.
           \_ is she a nerd? does she laugh funny? is she actually decent looking?
