Cartoonists Matt Davies, Tom Toles and Joel Pett offer some perspective on the news of the day.

July 05, 2009|JOEL PETT | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist at the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Sometimes it's good not to be center ring in the media circus. While the kings of pop-culture journalism scramble to meet round-the-clock deadlines, and the Web denizens deify and denigrate, cartoonists can reflect a bit, even blend tribute and peripheral commentary. Matt Davies handed in an iron-fisted Iran-focused gem. Tom Toles slid by with a topical optical illusion. And I hungered for the memory of one of music's truly altruistic (if ultimately all-too-unrealistic) events. Now, back to the death-defiling show.

-- Joel Pett
