Since being an editorial cartoonist is my day job, it's nice to flex my artistic muscles and do illustrations from time-to-time. The illustrations above accompanied a n atmospheric piece about the colorful and adventurous life of a tanker truck driver written by Pulitzer-Prize winning New Yorker author John McPhee for In Transition magazine. No word yet of work from the New Yorker
When I get a copy of the layout, I'll post that too.

Just forget what he said about black people.

First of all, a cup of coffee has twice as much caffeine as most energy drinks. Second, there is a multitude of bad choices for kids to make in regards to their diet.
Is he also considering banning the Xbox and Playstation, since it causes kids to exercise less and flop in front of the tv more?
Bill would ban energy drinks for minors

From Portfolio's Mixed Media blog:
It's a good thing the FCC doesn't regulate indecency in cable, because a CNN cameraman got a shot he probably wasn't bargaining for during live coverage of the Serbian riots this afternoon...

Apparently, not that far fetched, according to him! He has already hired Jeff Lane, a Capitol Hill veteran who most recently serving as Chief of Staff for Senator John Edwards.
And listen to what people are saying about him in Washington.
“He’s Hispanic and he’s from a state that really counts in the general election,” one DC consultant told PolitickerCO about Salazar’s chances.
For the time though, Salazar will keep his trap shut on who he's supporting.
He told the Rocky Mountain News that he's going to remain an undecided superdelegate until very late in the nominating process, when he decides which contender gives Democrats the best chance to beat likely Republican nominee Sen. John McCain.

In today's New York Times, there's a good article on the Politicker sites. Go check it out.
Bob Sommer, the president of the Observer Media Group, had this to say.
“We view this as one of the most ambitious projects right now in journalism. We’re basically creating 50 news bureaus with full-time reporters in each state.”

The new teaser trailer has been released for the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. I am such a huge Indiana Jones fan, and I only hope this movie will be great. Watching the trailer, it looks like it as a lot of potential, but their is always that lingering afterthought of Harrison Ford old-maning his way through a set of CGI-enhanced plot-points.
We'll have to wait and see.
