I'm dumping these cartoons now because I'm going out of town, and I won't be back posting until Tuesday. Kristen and I are going up to Wellsboro tonight, and we're planning drink a lot at the Finger Lakes Wine Festival this weekend up in Watkiss Glen.

So talk amongst yourselves. I'll give you a topic. The Thigh Master is neither a thigh nor a master. Discuss.

Any f#@$ing time sweetheart!

Did he torture dogs left handed too?

Well, it's finally happened. Michael Vick, the quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges that he sponsored a dogfighting operation where dogs were housed, trained and fought at a property owned by Vick in Surry County, Va.

And it doesn't just stop with dogfighting. It gets a bit more grisly, with the loser of the fight either dying in the pit, being soaked and then electrocuted, drowned, hanged or shot.

It's a disastrous allegation for Vick, who according to Judy Battista of The New York Times, stands to lose quite a deal of wealth, not to mention freedom, if found guilty. Since he joined the N.F.L. in 2001, Vick’s No. 7 jersey had been among the top five sellers among all players. Not to mention his many lucrative endorsement deals with companies such as Nike, Coca-Cola, Hasbro and Kraft, among others.

I guess that Madden curse is real...

Indictment puts Vick's earning power in limbo

And here's the clip of the dog being hit during the Tour de France. Not to worry, the dog came out of it unharmed, which is more than can be said for Vick's pups:

Grading on a curve...

I was watching the Sunday talk shows this morning, and on every single one, the question was asked; What grade do you give this administration on the war in Iraq?

This struck me as odd for two reasons:

#1- Is this grade school mentality of relating a war with over 3,000 American deaths, and tens of thousands of Iraqis', to a grade-school report card the best the mainstream media has?

#2- Is there any other possible grade than an 'F'?

Professor Corzine is beginning to dip back down to reality. Once enjoying extremely high poll numbers and support, he is beginning to slide back due to his refusal to come clean about Carla Katz, and his unwaivering support of a so-far secret plan to 'monetize' New Jersey's toll roads.

It doesn't take a wizard to figure out that its time for him to explain his plan, unless he's got something to hide.

Here's the sketch:
