For a split-second, upon a first glance, I thought you had drawn a hamster ball. Then I saw the joke fully and laughed, but the myopia-induced first glance added a spin to it.

That really sums it up. Great 'toon!

Jim: Awesome as usual. :-) Totally non sequitur, but I don't know how else to pitch an idea for a cartoon to you: given Bush's recent comments about ANWR being a source of relief for high fuel prices, here's what I suggest. In the forground is Bush filling up a ginormous SUV (you draw those so well) with the pump saying $3.65 or something and him saying "See, it's 2 cents cheaper a gallon!" In the background is a big dump truck with "ANWR" written on the side dumping a load of polar bears, elk, and fur seals (which could have some rather surprised looks on their faces) into some sausage-grinder-looking machine with a hose leading into the gas pump. Anyway, in my mind it's funny...would love to see what you could do with that. Thanks.

hey craig f...the hell with the country...just say no to anwr.

thank chuck schumer in 10 years when you're paying $15-$25 a gallon for his misguided pledge to ensure we all suffer for the sake of a polar bear to stroll on barren perma-frost unimpeded by an oil derrick.

Another great one Jim. We're blessed to have you here in Cincinnati. Not sure if you've got an idea submittal process (do know that you've got plenty of good ideas yourself), but thought I'd send this your way none the less. Spoof of Bill Clinton wagging his finger denying sexual relations - yet in this case, it's Obama wagging his finger and stating to the cameras that "I have not had spiritual relations with that pastor." Just a thought.

Wow...if even a mere description of my cartoon idea evokes a response from the nothing-matters-but-cheap-gas crowd like this comment above, I think we may have a winner.

After all, when even the US Dept of Energy estimates that opening up ANWR will do NOTHING to the price of gasoline, it's hard to figure out just how much people must hate the environment to want to pursue this.

Besides, if a majority of us are still using gasoline as the major power source for our cars in 10 years, I'll be greatly disappointed in US ingenuity.

Imus: Sure, instead of $15 - $25, it'll be $14.99 - $24.99, and ANWR will be a mess! Seriously, just one less cent a gallon at best . . .

ANWR Drilling: Bad for America, bad for Alaska, just a bad idea . . .
