Sep 16, 2019 by Mike Peterson

Wallace the Brave is off to have a terrible picture taken of himself. I remember having a school photo taken and then, two months later, getting to see how horrible it was.

CSotD: Catching up with reality

Sep 15, 2019 by Mike Peterson

Starting with a blank panel this morning because I don’t want to single anyone out, nor do I want to run a half-dozen or more cartoons all pointing out that Bernie Sanders sure does talk loud. I guess they hadn’t noticed before. When I moved back East a little over 30 years ago, Bernie was […]

Sep 14, 2019 by Mike Peterson
