CSotD: So anyway …

(Ann Telnaes — WashPo) (Matt Davies — AMS) We could have a full day of nohting but Cruisin’ Cruz cartoons, but here are two and they pretty much tell the story (nice snow shovels), though it’s important, I suppose, to note: (A) Cruz lied about having promised his daughters a vacation and simply taking them […]

CSotD: The future of political cartoons (if any)

This isn’t actually an editorial cartoon, except that it is. It’s one of HJ Ford‘s illustrations for Andrew Lang’s 1894 retelling of Hans Christian Andersen’s “Blockhead Hans,” a story that suggested Andersen had a low opinion of the press in general and of editors in particular. There are enough editors in the world who think […]

CSotD: 40 days more honored in the breech

(Grand Avenue – AMS) (Joe Heller) Start the day with a Juxtaposition, because tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, which starts the beginning of Lent, which used to matter to people a whole lot more than it seems to in the present day. You can go back into history and find all sorts of ways people marked […]

CSotD: Happiness and other fairy tales

Today’s Pardon My Planet (KFS) provides a coincidental coda to the impeachment, because, come on now, what did you expect? I’m actually more optimistic now than I was at 24, when I was sure, along with a whole lot of other people, that Nixon would escape the revelations of Watergate. In fact, I wrote a […]

CSotD: Back to School (maybe)

We’re starting to move kids back into the schoolrooms, and Signe Wilkinson (AMS) questions the wisdom of the move. There are many layers of this issue, and “Follow the science” is deeply tangled up with “Follow the sociology.”   Joe Heller takes a similarly skeptical view of the development. Is it science, or is it […]

CSotD: A Break in the Non-Action

Joel Pett (Trib) has it pegged: Conviction is not the only goal in this impeachment, and that’s a good thing because it ain’t gonna happen. And part of the historical record is not simply Trump’s actions as president but who and how many in the Senate are willing, in the name of blind party loyalty, […]

A Handful of Updates

Henry Martin A little drawing appeared around Reunions in 1983. It showed a smiling tiger strolling into Murray-Dodge Hall to the new AA Haven, set up to support alumni during Princeton’s annual alcohol-laden bash. “It was just a little vignette, but it was lighthearted and it made the whole thing seem unthreatening. And thoroughly Princetonian,” […]
