Below is the latest The Pain -- When Will It End?
Sometimes I get to imagining that
I will someday go too far in my cartoons and be questioned or reprimanded
by mean, scary men in suits representing The Government. I realize this is
ridiculous; people like cartoonists are only persecuted in shaky little third-world
dictatorships where free speech is still perceived as a potential threat.
Here in the U.S. we know better. Nobody in Washington gives a shit what a
cartoonist in some alternative weekly says about them. Still, I drew this
cartoon thinking it might be a good epitaph to run in the event of my detainment/
disapprearance/ assassination. Then, on second thought (and because I had
an early deadline) I decided to run it right away.
