Agree with the surge towards ‘anti-intellectualism’ overall but also see this cartoon differently…and liked it enough to bookmark it for later use. Rather than a broader attack on those with ‘education,’ I’d offer it as a reference to a particular – and particularly ineffective – school of thought in education/child psych. Teaching, supporting and nurturing are key but can’t act independently of effective and timely response/redirection for interfering/problem events based on conditions.
a particularly dumb cartoon string
Fascinating cartoon since the reason Arafat’s memorial didn’t occur was due to infighting between the PA and Hamas.
Teacher should just grade the spelling and ignore the rest….its not that complicated, really
The winter cartoons get really repetitive…and boring. That, and I LIKE winter.
Its a holiday….
Is Arial serious? As hard as it is to understand, health care reform is taking hold even while under the constant assault of sniveling wealthy GOP politicians and hacks aidded and abbeted by others who clearly haven’t a clue. No, its not perfect…but it is a huge improvement. Now, draw a cartoon which shows how much more the lives of Americans could be improved by ACA if the GOP weren’t corporate bottom feeders.
Lisa really needs to do even a bit more homework on the regular use of Executive Orders; start with the ‘Old Liberal,’ Ron Reagan and move to the more recent still to be indicted W Bush. This cartoon is just propaganda; humor still needs some connection to relevance.
Lisa is off my Favorite List for GoComics.
Maybe it will come back smarter and ready to start a drone/robot revolution.
