    Just an aside, there was, for a very brief time, a US quarter that had a very similar image on the front. It was the quarter minted the year my father was born. http://coins.about.com/od/famousrarecoinprofiles/p/breastedliberty.htm

    Pat! Pat is back! The best of the Toonists the last 20 years and LONGER. Pat, I thought you’d been isolated in a Fox Rush Noise cell somewhere for being too good for too long! Keep it up, my man! The world needs to see your voice! Huzzah!

    Why does a naked woman have to be in the forefront of all male endeavors?

    @OldCoal

    Gratuitous? Are you saying that it would be gratuitous insult to call Islamic terrorists vicious, cold-blooded, killers?

    The pith of the point can only be obtained without gratuitous rants aka “vicious, cold-blooded killers.”

    The notion of cartoonists going into actual battle, even with sharpened pencils, is, obviously, a metaphor of ridicule, but – we have long known the truth of the adage, ‘The pen is mightier than the sword.’ Why? A sword only wields violence – the pen can wield the truth. As Twain has said, ‘Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.’ More than a few tyrants, and wannabee tyrants have been laughed out of town. The Tammany Hall machine was so outraged by Nast’s cartoons, that, in their rage, they tried to have him killed, and made foolish mistakes that led to their downfall.To respond to any assault with sheer violence only drags us down to that level, and makes us no better than the assailant, whoever it may be. It only reveals the hideous underbelly of humanity.
