Man in blue: The publisher wants to know how the article on the booming economy is coming along.
Window reads: DAILY GAZETTE
Hopefully an image of Congress?
The “Boom” is the economy hitting rock bottom…
Or another “Boom” is the sound of trillions of dollars being poured into occupying and attacking Afghanistan and Iraq, thus keeping the U.S. economy from booming.
can’t come up with anything that doesn’t sound political so, since i can’t say anything nice i won’t say anything. maybe later.
“It’s sadly sagging, sir.” Sully sadly said.
I’d have to say the economy is very progressive.
Lol! Good one.The dollars are booming out of the fed!
tell the publisher that i’m going to work for an online news website ie politco, huffington post, etc…not this dying medium.
What planet does he live on?
Actually, a small group of people are doing very well in this economy. It’s just not trickling down.
Heres todays buzz words to be included in your STORY.
This business is losing a lot of money on that much empty office space. Move this guy to a sub-leased mop-closet.
>50% annual raises for CEOs means it is doing great!
The publisher lives under a rock?
Per-employee productivity is waaay up.
Outdoors outfitting companies are having a banner year.
Just tell him the cancer of big government is doing a great job of eating up the body of it’s host. It’s almost death time.
Must be talking about those jobs Perry’s claiming he created in Texas (if you want to eat, it helps if you have at least two of them).
@NightShade09 — The wonderful Texas jobs! They offer great benefits. Like a T-shirt: “I Survived a Job in Texas”.
The economy is improving? I might be able to find a job? Probably not in newspapers, though.
Wiley – thanks for keeping us amused in not-so-amusing times.
Today’s privately-owned Albuquerque Journal did NOT run this strip. Think it hits a little too close to home for the publisher…
For the ignorant blaming Obama, listen, the president is not in charge. The Federal Reserve is, and if you did your homework, you would see that they have controlled the US economy since its conception in 1910. And there is absolutely nothing Federal about them. Wake up already America!!
Not too good I would say.
All the money we gave to the banks: Invested in the stock market when it was around 7400. It was a much better investment that lending it to a bunch of chumps to generate jobs in a poor economy.
The ‘toon is what’s happened for some time in newsrooms across the country. In the “electronic media” the reporters are almost totally gone replaced by “big hair morons” reading inept scripts. It goes back some time to “an informed public is a dangerous public”. (that would be Karl- Rove, not Marx)
sounds like a NY Times publisher, not the daily Gazzette.
This kinda reminds me of the paper I work for..
Walter Duranty’s afterlife, maybe?
is that better than 13. i don’t want to waste my time if can.
you must pc or young,i rember bom bay. i also rember the flies.
The one that are doing well are having a Tea Party.
Agreed—very pertinent to the news of today.
How long is Wiley’s vacation?
@hsawlrae- I have said for years that DC is a big mistake. Our elected need to stay at home with their constituency and do group business only online.
