Cartoon Tuesday

Cartoon Tuesday: On the Wrong Track

3:13 PM PDT on April 7, 2009

Usually, I just syndicate the weekly Cartoon Tuesday post from my friends to the east, but with them mired in fare hike and service cut hell, they just don't seem as jovial these days.  Thus, I'm left to my own devices and struck gold with my first look when I stumbled on the exact opposite of the kind of cartoon we usually feature. 

Kelly, a syndicated cartoonist who's work appears in the most read weekly news-paper in the country, in addition to slamming the all-powerful Amtrak Lobby also speaks out against highway tolls, skateboarders, and librarians.  Oh, and he doesn't think much of public transit either.

Of course, the aforementioned newspaper is The Onion, so we can rest safely that even when they are inking an editorial cartoon, they're just pulling our leg.
