CSotD: The Parable of the Bad Shepherd

Phil Hands leads off today with a narrow accusation I want to expand into a continuing theme. The refusal to wear masks, or, more broadly, the refusal to take Covid-19 seriously, requires a level of gullibility that should boggle the mind. That is, it’s not just “bad science.” The anti-vaxxers can at least string together […]

CSotD: Substituting Stories for Statutes, and other follies

Marty Two Bulls certainly has standing to make this observation, but I would point out that he’s saying something less about “cancel culture” and more about honest history. That’s not to say that a frank reassessment of our history might not require some adjustments, including settling some land claims in the case of Indians, and […]

CSotD: Bread and Stones

Which of you, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? — Matthew, 7:9 I agree with Ann Telnaes. It is unconscionable that employers can provide health coverage but limit it to only the care they deem moral. As a recovering Catholic, I’ve always felt persuasion was a more defensible tactic than […]

CSotD: If you go right, you’ll be left

Today’s headline is from an old joke, one that struck me as funny at an age when I wasn’t quite old enough for more sophisticated wordplay: Woman: Where is the platform for the 8 o’clock train? Attendant: If you go left, you’ll be right. Woman: Don’t be impertinent! Attendant: All right. If you go right, […]

CSotD: Fighting Hate With Homework

Here are the most recent two days at Prickly City, and whether or not this is going to be a week-long story arc, Scott Stantis has already outlined the dilemma facing thoughtful conservatives. It’s that whole thing about whether it’s nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageously offensive blathering or […]

Lalo Alcaraz Partners With The Republicans

The Lincoln Project is hitting Donald Trump again—this time partnering with a well-known Latino cartoonist from Los Angeles who never thought he would work with Republicans. The group made up of veteran Republican strategists, who have endorsed Democrat Joe Biden for president, partnered on a political cartoon with pioneering artist Lalo Alcaraz, who created La […]

CSotD: Minding Our P’s and Q’s

Kal Kallaugher makes the best use I’ve seen of the two lawyers who freaked out (again?) because people were marching up the private road next to their property en route to the mayor’s house. Which long sentence I employ because of all the people who have spoken up to defend the couple, misrepresenting the nature […]

CSotD: Post-holiday clean-up

I was going to avoid politics today, but I’m not sure this Candorville counts as politics so much as sociology. Yesterday’s social media postings were full of white folks being shocked and righteously indignant that the original Independence Day didn’t free anyone but them. It reminded me of my oft-told story of coming away from […]

From the Anderson County Review Facebook page: The Guardian carries the […]

CSotD: Life in the Idiocracy

Let’s begin apolitically, with this Greg Kearney depiction of the woman who was gored by a bison a few days ago at Yellowstone. Last time I was at Yellowstone, I passed a jogger, then came over a hill and saw a herd of bison, so I slowed down until the jogger caught up so that […]

CSotD: Thank God It’s Wednesday

The blowback from the revelation of Russian bounties on American servicemembers continues, with a flood of cartoons on the topic. Glad it’s early in the week, because there’s also a flood of other topics cresting. I’m leading with Nick Anderson‘s because it not only riffs on the President’s arrogant assertion that his behavior doesn’t matter […]
