The progressive editorial cartoon about the three signs of cancer, and gerrymandering.

start rant


Over the years I've drawn several cartoons depicting that sour dishrag of a man, Rusty Limpballs, and this was my favorite because it was so anatomically accurate.


So Trump's plan was to have his insurrectionists invade the Capitol and capture key Congressman, plus Mike Pence, stopping the certification of the election, which would then throw the whole of Democracy into a Constitutional crisis.

Trump would then, according to a story in Rolling Stone, give a blanket pardon to all of his domestic terrorists and the Republican Congressmen involved.

O! M! F! G!

Screw ending the filibuster. Bring back the public pillory. I feel the need to throw any number of unpleasant organic materials into the face of that vile, orange cretin over the course of the balance of his unnatural life.


A fellow Dallasite just got sentenced to 14 months in prison for his role in the January 6th insurrection. Not near long enough considering his posts on social media:

"Prepare Our Weapons, and then go hunting. Lets hunt these cowards down like the Traitors that each of them are. This includes, RINOS, Dems, and Tech Execs. We now have the green light.”

“There is roughly 800,000 federal agents, and less than 250 Traitor Democrat members in D.C….There are over 70 million of Us. We can take them!!!”

And who gave him the "green light"?

Yes, that scalawag Trump. He's a regular Ghandi.


From 1984 to 1994 I wrote gags for a syndicated comic called "The Quigmans". The creator ceased production in 2010.

The site had a web presence but it went offline soon after the strip went dark. I'd check in on the URL periodically to see, out of morbid curiosity, what people did with the name. Not much.

About three months ago I noticed that the domain name was purchased by someone in China.

Quigmans-dot-com is now a porn site. A Chinese porn site. (One of the categories is "Blond young teeth". That's.... a new one.)

I don't know why "quigmans" sounds like something salacious or obscene to the Chinese but I can't stop giggling about this.

I guess that means when all the daily newspapers finally succumb to the Great Idiocy "blondie-dot-com" and "doonesbury-dot-com", among others, will probably become Chinese porn sites, too.


As some of you may know I've been driving the same 1965 Mustang for approximately 370 years. This past weekend I decided the time was right to replace the brake and clutch pedal support, which had been exhibiting signs of severe wear over the past few months. I had no idea what the problem was as it's tucked deep under the dash so I bought all the parts I was certain I needed well in advance.

Sure enough, I came up short, lacking a set of thin plastic bushings which I just ordered, for about a buck apiece, from the online Mustang parts depot.

All I could think of as I pressed the 'submit' button was  "For want of a nail the horse was lost...."


Technical note: I finally fixed the Home and Newer buttons on the home page and the newest 'toon page. They're noticeably greyed-out and actionless now. Let's give all credit for this moment of clarity to the miracle that is vitamin D3.


Today's comic originally appeared April 28, 2010.
