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 #188: Why Obsess over a "Process" That's Really an Abscess?

Castigating Israel for not yielding to every foreign demand—including even his!—for the sake of the misnamed "Peace Process" (v.i.) in the Holy Land, President Obombast told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee that "The International Community is tired of an endless process …."  So am I.  Why can't the "International Community" stop trying to resuscitate said process, and mercifully allow it to undergo a natural death?
(Even if we Gentiles don't realize that 18 years is quite enough time to see whether the Oslo Accords and their successor the Road Map for Peace would prove effectual, the least that we ought to do is to stop referring to these fantasies collectively as the Peace Process; this designation denotes movement toward peace, but things have actually gotten worse, through the conferring of legitimacy upon terrorists.)
