Eyes on the prize

October 21, 2007|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

News of Al Gore's hot streak -- winning an Oscar, an Emmy and the Nobel Peace Prize -- burned up the airwaves, the Internet and editorial pages. Once cartoonists got past the obvious recount-demand laughers, we warmed up. Mike Lester's rightful recipient was apparently wronged. Mike's polar opposite, Steve Sack, tried to wrong the right. And Clay Bennett's mythic dragon slayer captured the big picture about the real prize: peace. Nice pax journalism, guys. But please don't enter these in the Pulitzers ... the former veep's roll has to stop somewhere.

-- Joel Pett
