If I seem a little distracted it’s because it’s opening day at Yankee Stadium and spring has finally sprung! The Tigers are in town and it’s cold as hell in New York, but hey, I don’t care. Game on! Now, where was I?
I’m feeling pretty negative about these so-called Libyan “rebels.” The world media is trying mightily to romanticize these folks into to something formidable, but I’m not so sure. Every time I see them blasting their guns into the blue desert sky in celebration, I cringe inside. Home run by Mark Texiera! Yankees lead 3 to 1. Sorry. What was I saying? Oh, right. That ragtag Libyan “army” of rebels is going nowhere without disciplined troops from outside. I just hope they’re Arab troops.
Stop by the Mark Twain House and Museum to see my exhibit of original editorial cartoon art. “Drawing Fire: Bob Englehart’s 30 years at The Courant.” It’s free and will be up through May. For more information, call the Mark Twain House and Museum at 860-247-0998. As long as you’re there, take a tour!
