The Week’s Best Cartoons 9/5

By Lalo Alcaraz

As a lifelong admirer of editorial cartoonists, I love looking for the cartoons that grab my attention throughout the week and compiling my favorites for all of you. This week, the cartoonists covered the reporting about Trump disrespecting fallen soldiers when he was overseas, the Black Lives Matter movement, the latest with COVID and schools opening, as well as Election 2020.

    I always look forward to TokyoSand’s Saturday cartoonfest. A truly great editorial cartoon should be the “knife-twist of accountability.” While reported articles keep the powers-that-be in check, and opinion and editorial sections help readers make sense of that reporting, editorial cartoons are the jolt that shocks you into caring. These days, there is ample material to keep the cartoonists working overtime, and they have become even more relevant in this age of social media where people’s attention is pulled in so many directions. Thank you for once again giving us a few chuckles on a Saturday afternoon, T.S.!

  2. A picture’s worth a thousand words!!!!! Sad, but true!!!!!! 👍💙👍

  3. I cannot imagine how bleak the days and weeks would become without the brilliant political cartoonists and their artistic contributions that tickle the brain. I always look forward to your weekly collection of cartoons! I apologize for my tardiness in reading, however much to my delight yesterday became an unexpected socially distanced family celebration. But, I digress. I follow many cartoonists throughout the week, Counterpoint among them. I am curious and therefore am compelled to ask if you read Daryl Cagle’s “Cagle Cartoons” and Cagle.com? I enjoy Cagle’s post of the 10 best published cartoons each week. For me, there can never be too many cartoons! Thank-you!
