TOON-OP

Three cartoonists' take on 2008 and the New Year too.

January 04, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

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.

-- Joel Pett
