It’s been a bad week for editorial cartoons. Lots of Hieroglyphic Egyptians, crumbling Sphinxes, and other crap. Out of all the cartoonist in the entire country, I only noticed Adam Zyglis, Nate Beeler and Ted Rall mentioning that we support dictators in the Middle East. I hope there were others, but most everyone I saw relayed the important editorial message “riots against bad man are happening.”
