As a cat owner, I personally enjoyed just looking at the variety of positions/activities in which Jim chose to depict the cats, aside from the obvios message of the cartoon.

The cartoon simply gets the point across, and is just fun to look at. Great job!

Governor Deval Patrick today signed a bill establishing a $3 million state-run volunteer program that has been one of the early priorities of his administration.

The Commonwealth Corps has a goal of enlisting 250 volunteers, a number the administration hopes will grow to 1,000 members over the next five years. Members will dedicate at least one year of service, which will include teaching in after-school programs, mentoring underprivileged youth, helping the elderly, and cleaning up parks and beaches,

“Massachusetts has a strong history of community service, volunteerism, and civic action and I am proud that the Commonwealth Corps will become a new chapter in that history,” Patrick said in a statement. “Through volunteerism, citizens have the ability to alter lives and communities while also experiencing the pride that comes with such service. I am excited about this new opportunity and look forward to the work ahead.”

Members of the Commonwealth Corps must be at least 18 years and will include mid-career workers and retirees.Volunteers will serve in a part-time or full-time capacity.

"Governor Patrick made volunteerism a priority as he took office and he should be congratulated for the effort put forth to create the Commonwealth Corps," House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi said in a statement released by the governor’s office. "This new law will help foster the true spirit of volunteerism and civic engagement that are hallmarks of our Commonwealth."

The program also includes a student-based component that will be administered through five yet-to-be-named public colleges or universities. Participating students will combine volunteerism with their area of study.

"Commonwealth Corps acknowledges and promotes the benefits of volunteerism," Senate President Therese Murray said in a statement released by the governor’s office. "It creates an active and renewable resource to help communities in need while teaching participants the valuable lesson of civic responsibility."

"The Life of the arts, far from being an interruption, a distraction, in the life of a nation, is very close to the center of a nation's purpose - and is a test of the quality of a nation's civilization." John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963

(C. S. Lewis has similar thing to say, especially about not letting a war stop the advance of intelligent civilization)

What a wonderful thing this could be if Bush took it seriously. He doesn't even look at the leaders when they are talking to him. (How much more oil is Bush going to get out of this?)

Why doesn't Bush throw a big party for all those who lost their arms, legs, eyes and brains in the war, to show appreciation, not just a few for-show calls over thanksgiving; everyone in this war should get a purple heart or a medal of honor
