TOON-OP : Seriously, folks

November 15, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist at the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His cartoons also appear in USA Today.

Sometimes cartoonists are clever, lighthearted cutups. Other times we labor over life-and-death matters, solemnly assessing senseless slaughter, harping on healthcare, conceptualizing on abortion. Nate Beeler grimly traced the roots of fundamentalist fury across the global divide and back. Dan Wasserman chewed out Democrats for choosing compromise. And Matt Davies' off-the-wall medical treatment recalled a Cold War classic from the Great Communicator. This week, weighty trumps witty.

-- Joel Pett
