End of Act 1

about Clay Bennett...

The son of a career army officer, Bennett led a nomadic life, attending ten different schools before graduating in 1980 from the University of North Alabama with degrees in Art and History. After brief stints as a staff artist at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette and the Fayetteville (NC) Times, he went on to serve as the editorial cartoonist for the St. Petersburg Times (1981-1994) and The Christian Science Monitor (1997-2007), before joining the staff of the ...

/chuckle. Notice the elimination of a 'toon criticizing Dear Leader for this greenie one?

The heavy hand of MSM censorship just came down.

Sorta shows who is really in charge at the TFP... They got caught in the act.

The least they could have done was change the title. Talk about arrogance...

I guess it was "curtains" for the short-lived toon earlier today.

We can always count on rolando to sniff out a conspiracy.

Two cartoons a scheduling glitch?

No, to rolando, this is just evidence of censorship and part of the vast left wing consipiracy.

Seriously, rolando, I don't know who's funnier: you or Clay.

The only difference is that I know Clay is trying to entertain.

As for this cartoon. I'm ignorant about this topic. Perhaps I'll learn something today.

There goes my easy popcorn!

Please, Clay, post the real "End of ActI", but not before I get back from the VA again, probably Thursday.

My apologies for the incorrect cartoon posted earlier today.

As much as I hate to disappoint Rolando, there was no conspiracy- just a glitch.

I can understand moonpie's failure to recognize anything humorous, but Clay?? Perhpas he got caught up in the left's enthusiam.

Guess I better start using those silly little smiley faces again.

A "/chuckle" and a "/groan" weren't enough, it seems.

Apologies are not necessary, Clay; we understood what happened. Or I did.

I would name others who likely understand but some play "Eeeuuw! Cooties!" games around here, something I am not into...

I guess the "arrogance" outweighed the "chuckle".

At that point it no longer seemed like you were kidding.

And in fairness, a lot of times you're more extreme than today and yet deadly serious.

You'll have to forgive me from not being able to tell the difference sometimes.

My the number of responses here, perhaps we've all said what we have to say on this subject?

I guess I'll sign off for the rest of the day and go drink my Kool-Aid.

No sarcasm [this time] moon pie.

Very little arrogance either...but that's what comes from being right so often. :}=

Seriously, when I am serious [ :}= ] it should be fairly obvious. I will try to be clearer [more clear??]. I am too old to be overly courteous anymore. Don't have time [left] for it.

When DearLeaderCare passes, my medical care will get cut off in favor of cost reduction through government assisted suicide-by-force, aka "rationing" and those killer-boring government lectures, anyway.

I seem to be one of those who now runs up the tab -- and I never even wanted MediCare to begin with. Had to take it or give up my TriCare drug insurance. At 5 or 6 hundred a month for drugs, who can lose it?

Your last was a good /chuckle. We've often accused you of that, you know...
