about "The Best Comic Strip Ever!"

The characters in my strip, set in Africa's Western Rift Valley, are: the Foolish Pride of lions (Leon, the haughty and lethargic King of Beasts; his queen, Leona; and their cub Lionel, an unpromising heir to the throne); Secretary Bird, a liason between the Royal Court and the rest of the animals; cerebral, man-imitating Ape, a reader of the Substandard; peevish Rhinoceros; harmless but senseless Ostrich; Crocodile, resident of the much-frequented Watering Hole, and his dentist, Crocodile Bird; Honey Badger (alias Ratel), the "Meanest Animal in the World", and his one associate, Honeyguide; Mumbo the elephant, a descendant of Jumbo and a butt of jokes about his weight and the size of his ears and nose; Duncan the dung beetle; ill-favored and unwashed Warthog; the craven, henpecked male and shrewish female hyaenas, both of them foul-smelling and perpetually at war vs. the lions; the mistaken-identity-plagued zebras; slow and superannuated Tortoise; Oxpecker, a companion of large herbivores; Hugh the chamaeleon; and walled-up Mrs. Hornbill.

Uncommon Commentary #106: UC #105 Follow-Up

Rarely does one of my posted postulations receive confirmation so quickly as has Uncommon Commentary #105, which arrived at the Doman Domain on Sunday; when I got home from church on that same day, I found a Connecticut Post front-page story titled "Global Warming Threat on the Rise."  Given that 1) world temperatures have remained flat for more than a decade; 2) electronic-mails "hacked" from the University of East Anglia's Climate Research Unit have shown leading proponents of the anthropogenic-global-warming theory to be self-serving, ruthless liars; 3) the UN's 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report is being revealed to contain so many errors that it would earn a failing grade in a high-school science class; and 4) as if to add an exclamation mark to the refutation of the "scientific" assertions, many parts of our country have seen record amounts of snowfall in the past few weeks, I would have expected the media to at least wait for a heat wave before running another article like that.
