    “Aww, this isn’t so bad” – what the tourists from Dubai, Malaysia and Ecuador say during a “sweltering” day. Usually just prior to being “disappeared”.

    Yeah, D.C. gets pretty hot and humid. So do a lot of other places where I’ve also been. But precious few have cartoonists as sharp as Richard.

    One of the side running gags in “Throw Mama from the Train” was Billy Crystal’s aversion of any attempts of using “sultry” in writing or conversation.

    Ha! Wimps, you all! When central Texas was in the middle of it’s worst hot spell of the summer a few years back, reaching 114 degrees on one day, Phoenix, AZ, was hitting 116. You talk of birds sticking in the air, and volcanic vents opening in your backyards, but on that day, cars disappeared into the molten tarmac of their driveways to never be seen again.
