Cartoons, week of 09.27.09





This week, the United Nations took center stage. I was remind that there was a boogey man, and not only is he very scary and real, he can sometimes make me laugh. I don't know if Chavez, Ahmadinejad and Quadifi are funny looking and sounding because they are from different cultures and the voice-overs are amusing... but perhaps because the things they say and the things they stand for are so frightening, that short of soiling myself, I laugh.

Polanski was arrested Sunday when he entered Switzerland to accept a lifetime achievement award. This whole situation confuses me. Being a huge movie fan as well as a huge Polanski fan (he directed more of my top 20 favorite movies than any other director) it troubles me that this charge is still out there and more importantly, it has yet to be resolved. What he did was wrong and he should pay for his crimes, but really, Switzerland? Of all countries, a country that has tried to stay out all wars and not take a stand on anything?? Interesting.

Georgia has enjoyed over 10" of rain over the past 3 weeks. Needless to say the ground ain't thirsty anymore...
