How do cartoonists respond to 9/11 Anniversary?

My Facebook wall is full of editorial cartoons this morning on the topic of 9/11. I’m seeing two approaches to the 12th anniversary. Cartoonists are sticking to the sentimental or they’re pointing out how it’s changed America.

An example of the sentimental by Jeff Koterba:

When Joe Staton and I took over DICK TRACY, we decided 9/11 would always observed in the strip. Why?

Our first observance of 9/11 was the tenth anniversary, a Sunday. We had Tracy, Sam, Lizz and the Chief remembering friends they lost on that day.

If Dick Tracy was real he would have lost friends in the towers.

For economy of line, for getting right to the point, and for a style unlike anybody else’s, Pat Bagley tops my list of cartoonists I want to be like when I grow up.

If Dick Tracy was real, he’d have been dead at least 20 years now.
