TOON-OP

Screen grabs

Cartoonists Rob Rogers, Mike Lester and Bruce Plante look to Hollywood to take a look at the news.

October 04, 2009|Joel Pett

Early editorial cartoonists slipped in references to fables and Shakespeare and borrowed freely from history and art, but nowadays culling from culture is mostly about the tube and the multiplex. Rob Rogers loves nothing more, more, Moore than to B-rate bloated bankers. Mike Lester's Roman-Catholic-Polanski piece allows no separation of church and state crimes. And Bruce Plante conjures classic Tinseltown, calling a tinhorn dictator a cowardly liar.

-- Joel Pett--

Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His work also appears in USA Today.
