This cartoon comes from the cartoonist who was bitching yesterday that other cartoonists draw crap?

Sure you can draw a nice plate of cookies, but this is just as ridiculous as any cartoon in Charles Brooks' BECY.

Re recent nasty bloggers: Yeaterday's cartoon was a blast -- a great drawing, and this one is on the money in a lot of ways.

Jeez, this cartoonist deserves a prize for putting up with all the crappy guests on his site.

Mitchell press conference live updates
Reliever Eric Gagne, who pitched for the Red Sox last season, was among those identified in Mitchell's report. Roger Clemens, Barry Bonds, and Miguel Tejada were also on the list. In lieu of punishments, Mitchell thinks the commissioner should allow a fresh start, except for the most severe instances of steroids use. He concluded that the use of performance-enhancing drugs was widespread in baseball and that baseball was slow to respond. He said steroid use appeared to be down, but that use of human growth hormone has risen.

Human trafficking a growing problem By HENRY SANDERSON, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 10 minutes ago

BEIJING - Cross-border human trafficking for forced labor and prostitution is a growing problem along China's southern border, officials said Friday at a conference on the issue.

Greater cooperation among the various countries will be needed to fight the problem and track criminal gangs dealing in humans, officials from China, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam said on the final day of the conference.

China uncovered 2,500 cases of human trafficking last year, and most involved criminal gangs, Chinese Vice Minister of Public Security Zhang Xinfeng said.

Zhang said the number of cross-border cases was still small at about 100. But he added the trend was for that "to grow and we need to further strengthen our cooperation and carry out further joint actions to combat this tendency."

A lack of reliable data makes it a difficult problem to tackle, and most of the information mainly comes from those who have been arrested and caught.

Representatives from the six countries that first reached agreement on human trafficking in 2004 met in Beijing this week to sign a declaration aimed at ending the problem.

Cambodian Minister for Women's Affairs, Ing Kantha Phavi, said the problem was not only a matter of criminal prosecution but of prevention. She was the only representative not from a law enforcement body and the only woman at the meeting.

"We need an ... approach where all ministries can work together," she said.

Myanmar's Minister for Home Affairs, Gen. Maung Oo, said his country had stiff penalties of 10 years in prison to death for human trafficking, but faced problems because of its porous borders.

The Bush administration has said Myanmar is ineligible for U.S. aid for failing to meet minimum standards of fighting human trafficking.

The meeting ended a day after five people were jailed for abducting and trafficking eight boys in southern China's manufacturing center of Guangdong province.

The official Xinhua News Agency the five enticed boys with snacks. It said they then wanted to sell the boys in Fujian province for a total of $1,800.

Not that anyone gets one anymore,
but a big lump of coal as the "corporate holiday bonus" would be appropriate as well.

like this work atmosphere is easy to survive (like it's funny - ha! ha!) after 6-10 years, esp working side by side with people who blatantly display their communist chief/scythe on their desk next to you!

not only has america sold their corporations overseas for a buck, but also their souls; as any biblical "scholar" in this country about what happened every time the israelites mixed with other "religions;" but the problem is, no one in his country reads the Bible or gives a crap about what God wants in regard to anything, big or small

Kick Me

Quite a number of readers have informed me that Volvo is owned by Ford, in reference to a cartoon I did a few days ago about the Ford plant closings. Sorry about that. No one caught it here and I'm apparently behind on my automotive reading.

And I could just as easily have chosen Saab or Volkswagen or Subaru to label the back of that car. Kicking myself. My bad.

On another matter, it always cracks us up here on the editorial page when readers complain that our page is BIASED!!!!!!!! Imagine! Opinion on an editorial page. I don't know how people reach adulthood without grasping the concept that an opinion page is for opinions. And an editorial cartoon is, yes, my take on the world, nothing more nor less.

So accuse me of anything but bias. It's like accusing a nun of praying. It's what we do. It's our calling.
