TOON-OP

On top of the summits

Cartoonists Rob Rogers, Signe Wilkinson and Joel Pett take a look at recent gatherings of global leaders.

Forget the 5-cent cigar -- what this country needs is more high-level international meetings on intractable and divisive long-term problems. Americans were riveted by the global warming summit, the president's appearance at the United Nations and the G-20 economic forum. OK, not so riveted, but cartoonists took note. Rob Rogers expressed his hometown hosting pride, Signe Wilkinson reminded us of the rough international company we keep, and I went ballistic over rising tides. Say ... don't cigars emit greenhouse gases anyway?

-- Joel Pett

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