  1. Matt’s not mean enough, or p*ssy enough to be -or be defended from being, the BC. That said, his observations are simply that: the most published ed. cartoonist working today uses a repeating hook some 30 days out of 250. I have a bigger problem w/ TIME putting Obama on the cover 13 times out of 52.
