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 #509: (GB Says) "PU" to the EU

I have not studied the reasons for what has become known by the imbecilic coinage “Brexit”, but the decision to leave the European Union (EU) is probably correct.  I’m in favor of cooperation between countries, but the degree of cooperation mandated by the EU seems excessive; many economists, for instance, have ridiculed the idea that a common market has need of a common currency such as the “Euro” (another stupid name).  And then there’s the EU’s policy of maintaining open borders between member states, which is a reason why the refugee problem in Europe is at crisis level.  (If none of the preceding confirms the wisdom of the UK’s departure, consider also that Obama is opposed to it!)
