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 #271: The Fact that I'm a Doman Doesn't Make Me a DOMAn

The Defense of Marriage Act or DOMA is not, contrary to the bluster of "Gay-rights activists" and to the implication of its own title, what it ought to be: a law against unnatural, unreasonable, and ungodly "same-sex marriage".  Like the defunct so-called "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, it's a Clinton-era compromise, neither enforcing nor preventing the legalization of homosexual wedlock but reserving to the States the decision whether to legalize it or not.  The real reason why leftists hate it is that, being leftists, they can't bear to allow anyone the potential to exercise his will in opposition to theirs.
