    The Tweets of Roland Hedley:

    “What did you see, Roland?”

    All I saw: Wasilla.

    “How did Sarah wear her hair?”

    Odd Alaska yak salad do.

    “Why are you there?”

    Harass Sarah.

    palin drome: entertaining stuff.

    Sheik Yerbouti: nice appropriate quote.

    Isn’t cutting down a tree in Alaska against some sort of federal law?

    Only if there’s a grizzly bear in it, sandfan. In which case it’s against the law of common sense.

    It is interesting that the story of the stalking journalist is more worthy of comment even by GT than the book this guy is writing..

    Can’t cut down a tree? Where are the renewable energy people? Watching the land prices in the oil fields soar in the post-Gulf economy? Could nasty rumors start?

    Have go swimming in that lake Sarah killed. Or perhaps go talk to Sarah’s high school boyfriends. I bet they have non-disclosure orders from her!

    No trees were cut down, nor was any grizzly hurt in the making of this cartoon. Can’t say the same about printing it.

    You have to be American to appreciate our grizzlies. In England once, a woman asked me if I’d ever seen a “grizzly BEAR.” I had to think for a moment before I realized she meant “GRIZZLY bear.”

    Today’s strip, read with dtroutma’s post below, suggests a good definition of “neo-con”: Someone who keeps a picture of SP in his/her wallet, purse or bedroom. The journalist (he probably freelances for talk shows) that Roland is staking out is an SP voyeur. Roland, of course, is GT’s universal voyeur, and he stands for what gives tv news its main appeal.

    If he pointed those binoculars in another direction, Roland might see Russia.

    I been around a number of grizzly bear, Roland’s had some tough assignments, monitoring the journalist might not be bad , but catching sight of the journalists objective? Let’s hope he doesn’t have to see THAT “grizzly” bare!

    Roland, how are you getting around?

    A Toyota.

    Not nearly as good as yours, though

    palin drome,,, Having visited England and still with ties there, You gave me my laugh for the day… Great one!

    One English lady said to me, “You’re the real thing aren’t you?” My chest swelled with pride until she explained she meant I was a real cowboy. (I was helping out at an Old West theme park.)

    The English think about foreigners in stereotypes. That’s where they get their endearingly insular sense of humor—-and their love of Doonesbury.
