Today’s View From the Bull Pen
We have them all wrong. From constant news coverage of Jodi Arias and OJ Simpson to athletes getting mega bucks for playing a game, our sense of what is important is completely and totally screwed up. You'd think that we might have learned something from the recent events in Boston. That heroes emerge from even the most difficult of circumstances, but, no, we return to the inane and inconsequential. Amanda Knox. Film at 11.
I drew this cartoon after reading the recent story about Andrew Wiggins, supposedly the "next" LeBron James, signing a letter of intent with Kansas. While Wiggins did his best to keep his signing from becoming too much of a circus, it still carried huge weight in the 24/7 news cycle. It made me think of the number of brilliant kids who will walk across graduation stages all over our country in the next few weeks, whose names are only heard as they stride forward to get their diplomas. No newspaper columns are written or press conferences held for valedictorians or honor students, but, hey, dribble a basketball and we hear all about it. Priorities. Yeah. I'd say we have them pretty screwed up.
As always, your readership and your comments help to make the world go round, so please continue to add them. I will try to do a better job of responding.
There isn't a way to leave comments in the Bull Pen so please feel free to leave your comments under the latest cartoon that I post.

I think it’s safe to say that Tim Tebow had the last laugh. John Elway proclaimed to reporters earlier in the week that Tebow still might not be the Broncos…

It’s been a surprising start for the NFL. The Chiefs (Our pal, Gene, is cheering right now) and Bears are 3-0, the Cowboys and Chargers are 1-2 and the whole league seems topsy turvy. All in all, the surprises of the season sure are making it fun to watch and a blast to draw cartoons about.
The game changes so much from year to year, sometimes it’s hard to keep up. this was inspired by a story from a few weeks back about misplaced jewelry on the field. This just seemed a funny contrast to me from the days when contacts were all you could ever lose (besides a fumble). So here’s a little frivolity for today. The last two days have been so somber.
