  1. I am particularly drawn to the first cartoon by Steve Breen. “In a multi-racial society, trust, understanding and tolerance are the cornerstones of peace and order.” – Kamisese Mara. As many of these political cartoonist’s depictions prove, America has a long way to go. Thank-you!

    • The rest of the cartoons had such a different feel to them, I thought leading off with Breen’s was the right call. I’m glad to hear that one resonated with you, Ellen.

    I haven’t done a cartoon post for a couple of months. The political cartoons today are darker, more brooding … but then, so is our nation. Today, though, I am ready for a break from my usual fare … the snarky & angst need to rest for just a minute. So … today I am sharing TokyoSand’s weekly cartoon roundup. The ‘toons sometimes speak louder than words. Thank you, TS!
