A Good Cartoon is Worth a Thousand Words...
Sorry, but we're going to need another day to absorb all this history in the making. Meanwhile, we thought this classic Jeff Darcy toon spoke more eloquently than anything we might add to the mix of commentary just now. If our pronounced Lincoln weakness is showing, so be it. Note the "terrorist fist jab," as the idiot provocateurs at Fox News would call it.

Amen, John. This has got to be one of Darcy's best cartoons.

I hope readers will stop by the link below and check out your latest print piece, posted online. Curious that you also happened to refer to Lincoln in this one, Miles. He seems to be on the mind of many just now.

Know you are not a huge Newsweek fan, but thought you would love the Lincoln references in first page of a very interesting and well done article on Andrew Jackson. The way he sets the scene for Lincoln's search for precedent was compelling.(You probably have already read the book, but many of the points in the article seemed germaine to today's thoughts)

The phrase "panopticon of fear" Miles used in his article ricocheted around my brain, driving home his main point very effectively. :)

That old boy Miles has a way of getting inside lots of people's brains with his poetic riffs. He's one of a kind.

Oh my gosh, I just came across this on 11/12, though it is a few days old. It is a column by Connie Shultz mentioning this very cartoon, plus a wonderful story too (big surprise). Enjoy.
