Sorry for the "do it yourself" nature of today's non-cartoon, but some personal circumstances just didn't allow me to take the time to do a real one today - in part because the news is so depressingly "more of the same" and I didn't have hours to look for something really compelling or (ha!) hopeful.
The fiscal cliff negotiations are going nowhere, unemployment is up (Wow! Knock me over with a feather!), the Middle East is getting ready to throw a chemical weapons party, and Obama is "consulting on tax rates" with MSNBC hosts Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow in the Whitehouse. No wonder my mental radio is constantly tuned to the Tourette's Top 40 lately.
So consider this a "Hope n' Change IOU" for humor to come. It's a lot like the IOUs the government is funding your Social Security and Medicare accounts with, except that mine will actually get paid in the future.
BONUS: Okay, here's a cartoon for today. Better late than never...and IOU paid!
