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 #343: Kermit the Dog

I find it extraordinary that no one, to my knowledge, made the same observation that I am now about public attitude during the just-concluded trial of serial killer Kermit Gosnell: Even someone who believes that there is a right to commit fÅ“ticide ought to be appalled to learn of the unsanitary conditions and medical inadequacies of Gosnell’s pseudo-clinic.  Do pro-choicers not care that his malpractice caused the death of a woman who was exercising what they consider to be her "right to choose"?  Evidently not.  The lack of indignation from Abortion Land demonstrates at least their true lack of concern for the women in whose interests they pretend to act, and perhaps also that they know that the "House of Horrors" was not exceptional.
