Delaware Cartoon: Gov. Markell Could Use the Help of Dr. Manhattan

Completely forgot to post this cartoon I did earlier in the week for Delaware newspapers.

Delaware's projected budget deficit for fiscal year 2010 is $600 million. Now, this might not sound like a lot compared to the billions in deficits states like New Jersey have to overcome, but remember that Delaware's entire budget is only $3.4 billion dollars. So $600 million (a number likely to go up in the coming weeks) is a large hurdle to overcome.

Maybe Markell should invest in Powerball tickets. Someone won in Dover a couple of weeks ago. Lighting might strike twice.
