Especially now that I'm only drawing once a week for the paper, I'm attracted to the idea of combining two issues on occassion. It' a little iffy sometimes to do this. Readers might think I'm trying to connect dots that aren't there and look for underlying meanings where they're not really intended.
But when I read of Sedgwick County Commissioner Kelly Parks' making a hubbub about getting rid of the pause in the Pledge of Allegiance before the phrase "under God," and at the same time Mayor Carl Brewer inserted a pause in our discussion about the Vietnam Memorial, I guess I couldn't help connecting a fictional dot or two.
Okay. Not the most profound toon I ever drew. Just a little joshing around.
