Sunday Funnies

It was quite the week on the geopolitical front last week with Iranian President Iamanutjob speaking at the United Nations. Boy he sure stirred things up and many nations walked out on his speech in boycott. President Obama addressed the international forum too but not before a blitz of the media capital of New York in an effort to preach the good word about his health care reforms. In a somewhat muted development Diebold announced they were getting out of the vote counting business. And the editorial cartoonists, bless their hearts, caught it all...

that nutjob is a psycho! I couldn't believe his "speech" and how long they let him rant like that. I love the first pic.

I am so so sick of seeing Obama! The cartoonists have it right!

Obama the krill and media the mighty sponge. What a great natural combo.

"Iranian President Iamanutjob"

HA! You pegged that one perfectly!

LMBO! You even got the right rhythm!

That was perfect Noname! Just perfect!

AND...I'm stumbling you. (I always forget to do that! But you are more than worthy of stumbling!)

dizzblnd: Isn't it interesting how political cartoons inspire passionate comments? Sick of seeing Obama? Is there any show he didn't do last week? Lost!

Don: Man, Don, you never cease to amaze me. That was a mighty obscure analogy. I had to look up "krill" to realize you were making a Red Lobster reference. LOL

Quirks: Thanks for the st-st-stumble

Great cartoons this week... of course, they had some great material to work with!

CL: Yep sometimes the subjects are as funny as the satire!
Man, I wish I could draw. There's some much to work with for political cartoonists.

Loved the "President Iamanutjob" thing. Awesome.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
