Here are my cartoons on the continuing protests in Egypt. The best part about covering a story that “has legs” is it allows you to explore multiple aspects of an event from different perspectives as it develops.

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree The true history of Valentine’s Day is shrouded in mystery, as there were several saints named Valentine, various pagan festivals were merged with the celebration and numerous embellishments and legends have been added over the centuries. It seems that the only things we can be sure of are: Valentine killed him [...]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan There has been a lot of media buzz about the thousands of prostitutes, strippers and pole dancers streaming into the Dallas area for the Super Bowl weekend. But what rarely gets reported is the alarming fact that hiding behind the push-up bras, false eyelashes and stilettos are children, some as [...]

As chaos blazes a destructive path across the Middle East, leaving in its wake depressed stock markets and inflated oil prices, and as snowmaggedon makes its march across America’s Midwest trampling any thought of global warming underfoot ““ call me crazy, but now seems the perfect time to renew the call once and for all [...]

Christians were not always opposed to evolution – mainly because Christianity has progressed and made slow, significant changes over time. Darwin’s theory of evolution is 160 years old.

It set off a chain-reaction of follow-up street confrontations — and underscored three realities. REALITY ONE: The [...]

Jordan is [...]

However, clinging to the phrase “American exceptionalism,” and elevating it as yet another password for patriotism, only misappropriates the concept. “They’ve refused to talk about American exceptionalism,” said House Speaker John [...]

How is President Obama doing as he enters the second half of his first term? Late-night comics know better than pundits. Let’s start with some of their earlier jokes: “¢ Jay Leno — “President Obama plans on training 10,000 new math and science teachers. How about teaching math to that economic team of his?” “¢ [...]
