Money talks

October 05, 2008|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Economistas and politicos may fear negativity more than fear itself, but cartoonists don't. Plenty of red-ink-stained wretches regard the financial system as a mere house of credit cards or some kind of consumer-confidence scheme. Mike Lester fumes about a tanked psych-onomy running on empty, while Signe Wilkinson roams further afield, contemplating the collapse of civilization. Steve Sack, always the cut-up, serves up choice subprime bull. (Call him an optimist ... he could've drawn and quartered a bear!) Man, if I just had a billion dollars for every hopelessly bleak cartoon.
