Making Sense by Michael Reagan It was nice to be away from politics for a week. It was even nicer to be in the great city of Boston for six days to celebrate the running of the 118th Boston Marathon. Watching the race with a million people — and meeting so many wonderful Bostonians — [...]

Politicians should have as many words for lying as Inuits have for snow. To tell the truth in politics requires only the inverse of the courtroom oath: I promise to tell some of the truth at least some of the time, so help me Fox News. Now a right-wing political group has asked the Supreme [...]

Exclusive Excerpt from: “Comical Sense: A Lone Humorist Takes on a World Gone Nutty!” by Tom Purcell Proms sure have gotten expensive these days. According to the San Jose Mercury News, high school kids spend nearly $4 billion annually for dresses, accessories, flowers, beauty products, limos and other prom-related items. The average couple spends upward [...]

I love black outlines for my drawings using various pens. My desire to use varied styles and techniques has allowed me to arrive at this style of painting, which at first was drawn using outlines. This painting of my mother, Mrs M. Fatunla as a young lady, will be the fourth portrait that I have done [...]

While I haven’t produced any aspara-berries yet, I do have a website containing maps of actual acreage where the plants could be grown. I’m also tweeting furiously about how my new business is certain [...]

On Good Friday, seven influential mainstream media outlets published passionate comprehensive immigration reform pleas thinly disguised as news stories. The Wall Street Journal reported that House Speaker John Boehner told a Las Vegas fundraiser crowd that he’s “hell bent” on passing a mass amnesty this year. Earlier, Capitol Hill insiders’ rumored that Boehner would wait [...]

Most readers of Cagle.com will instantly recognize the cartoons of Bob Englehart, the award-winning cartoonist of the Hartford Courant. What you many not know is Bob is also a talented writer, and just released a new book about his life and how he became the bomb-launching cartoonist we all have come to love. Three words- [...]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst You’d think Americans have enough stuff to worry about. Severe drought desiccating a third of the country. A political system whose major talent is demonstrating stasis in action. The rich using the poor as fleshy paving stones for the road to mansions on the hill. Ben Affleck as Batman. But, [...]
