Hot flashes

September 06, 2009|Joel Pett | Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist for the Lexington Herald-Leader. His work also appears in USA Today.

Editorial cartoonists are a smoldering lot, hot under the collar most days, consumed with a burning desire to scorch something, or at least spark a little controversy. Matt Davies' rescue crew was little help to the towering healthcare inferno. I targeted the creepy camo-ammo town hall crowd. (When free speech and guns form a combustible mix, call me a flaming liberal.) And Mark Streeter's tinder-dry wit hit Angelenos close to home. That's what I'd call playing with fire.
