A new planet for us to exploit

rob tornoe, tornoe, political cartoon

I don't know if you heard the news earlier this week, but European astronomers have found an "Earth-like" planet outside of our solar system, and relatively close, orbiting a red dwarf star every 13 days only 120 trillion miles away from Earth.

Dubbed Gilese 581 c, according to CNN, the new planet is about five times heavier than Earth, and gravity there would be 1.6 times as strong as ours. The research team believes the average temperature to be somewhere between 32 and 104 degrees and that set off celebrations among astronomers.

So pack your bags and get ready for a long ride, because with our existing technology, the journey would take roughly 87,509 years.

McGreevey assures us he was always a GAY AMERICAN!

Ahhhh McGreevey, the gift that keeps on giving. Our former governor didn't take kindly to words from his estranged wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, where she claimed that he wasn't gay, but rather a "bisexual."

McGreevey responded to the allegation by calling Matos a "homophobe" in a tirade of homosexual anger.

"On the off hand she wasn't paying attention, I AM A GAY AMERICAN. She is in deep denial. Why would she question what I have made clear? To try and lessen my 'gayness' by making me bisexual is a clear form of homophobia."

Delaware Press Association

Sorry, I have nothing new to post today. Last night I attended the Delaware Press Association's annual awards dinner, so I'm a day behind with my cartoons.

To wet your appetite, here are a couple of sketches for cartoons I'll finish tonight. See if you can figure out what they're even about, and check back tomorrow to see the finished toons.
