Laying it on the line

June 10, 2007|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Within the insecure borders of our drawings, cartoonists are doing work that most Americans won't -- trying to make sense of the immigration debate. And, OK, we've given you some poor, tired ideas and some muddled messes, but some good stuff too. Pat Oliphant doesn't sit on the fence with his medieval metaphor. Pat Bagley's amusingly complex dance steps on some toes. And who says we're never positive? Steve Breen portrays Dubya as a shining beacon of liberty at the golden door, only to be undermined by hardhearted hard-liners. Let's hope our papers are in order. The country couldn't survive without cartoonists' critical labor.

-- Joel Pett
