    Cheaters ne’er prosper either, Holly.

    As Lance Armstrong is finding out.

    Politicians seem to be immune, though. JFK, LBJ & Clinton all cheated on their wives. Charlie Rangel and Barney Frank both came to congress without two suits to their name and both are now multimillionaires. How?

    I wonder if she learned from it and will make more of an effort next time?

    Newt Gingrich, Mark Sanford, John Ensign. And Mahatma Rushie has been married how many times? And came back from the Dominican Republic with a prescription for Viagra NOT in his name. Spare me the crocodile tears and comment on the strip for once. This is NOT an editorial cartoon.

    I foresee some punishment coming which would be proper.

    LOL It wouldn’t have mattered if someone told you, Holly. You still would have scoffed at them and learned the hard way.

    Hmmm, sounds like Holly has earned another credit from the SHK [school of hard knocks] where the best instructor is experience.

    Well, there’s the financial industry, Wall Street, politics, immigration line jumpers(undocumented), health providers who commit Medicare/Medicare fraud etc., they may get caught, but many continue to prosper.

    I wonder what her punishment was. A failing grade only? Or will she be given the chance to redo the assignment with an automatic percentage deducted due to cheating the first time? Many days or weeks detention?

    Generalizing from a limited sample … these are well known specific cases. You can draw any inferences you want, but I suggest that even if I added FDR to the list of cheating Presidents and that dufus from N.O. with money in the freezer, it still would not call for your comment. To criticize Hanoi Jane and Joan Baez for their politics is not to criticize all white females.

    eventually! Crime is a very short-term solution, generally. Schemes to make it work long term eventually get called ‘business’.

    “School of Hard Knocks” = drop-out.

    JFK and Clinton got caught…it was just that their wives wouldn’t leave them.
