The 401(k) ball has dropped. Recession resolutions have been made. 2008 has been history for three days, though the economic hangover will throb for years. Let's toast the cartoonists (the ones whose jobs aren't toast) who rang in the reverse revelry. Don Wright lamented the Israel-Hamas fireworks. Mike Lester put no lipstick on a pigskin of a year. Finally, Mike Keefe's Father Time fast-forwarded to 2010. Not so fast, Mike ... cartoonists wouldn't want to miss a whole year of political party-crashing.
