If you are a follower of this blog and are now reading this. <y hats off to you. Thank you for visiting even though I have been away for yours.

A lot has happened, but of that lot, the most important and impactful one was last October 15th thing that could possibly happen became reality. At half past 9 that evening, my lovely beautiful wife gave up her fight against (what we thin was) Neuroleptic Malgnam Syndrome. A very rare side effect of anti psychotics. She was 57 years and 15 days old. I will miss her forever.

Lijda and I have been married for 22 years and we have been together for 25. She was my light, my inspiration, my rock. Everything I did, Everything I was, it was all for her.

So.. now I have to find something to do and maybe bringing back my blog is one…

211 Reasons Why You Should Not Vote For Donald Trump


Need any more? … ” I’m going to list every reason I can think of that should persuade you from voting for Donald Trump. I believe every single one of these issues, or points, is a stand alone disqualifier from voting for Donald Trump.”

Get a cup of coffee and sit down. This is my final pitch before election day (you may have already voted) for why you should NOT vote for Donald Trump. I have been putting this together since late August. I’m going to list every reason I can think of that should persuade you from voting for Donald Trump. I believe every single one of these issues, or points, is a stand alone disqualifier from voting for Donald Trump.

Number 1. Donald Trump’s hair. Is this petty? No. If you had never heard of or seen Donald Trump, the first thing you’d notice is the hair. In the future, when kids open their history books and see his photo, they’re going to say, “What the fuck?” Now, when we go through our history books, we see that presidents wore wigs in the earliest days of the presidency, then there was a…

long day ….


Long day, long week … long days!! … “Tomorrow is going to be a long day for everybody, and we know more long days will follow it. It’s to be hoped there will be only another 70 or so long days until Comrade Trump is out of office. Otherwise, I despair for the future of the United States.”

I’ll have to set an alarm tomorrow morning. It’s been a long, long times since I’ve set an alarm in the morning. Probably for 0500 hours, so I can wake up, check the perimeter with the cat, make coffee, get dressed, prepare food for the day, cosset the cat some, and get to the Lutheran church that’s my assigned polling station by 0600.

I’ll be there all day, setting up the polling station, checking in voters, registering new voters, handing out ballots. All day, until the polls close at 2100. Then maybe another hour breaking down the polling station.

I volunteered to be an election worker this year because of the pandemic. A lot of the usual election workers — mostly elderly women — opted not to work the polls out of a reasonable concern of contracting Covid-19. I live in Iowa, a state with a Republican governor who has…

Much progress has been attained since the years when women became more than just housewives, mothers, cooks, etc. Many of these achievements and rights may be on the balance now.

Super-Spreader Winner


Won’t be done after Nov. 3!! … “One thing is for certain beyond Tuesday and that’s that a lot of doctors, nurses, and hospitals are going to still be dealing with the Trump Virus…partly thanks to Donald Trump’s super-spreader events. That’s MAGA for you.”

Sometimes people forget that I draw for news outlets and not for social media. This is a post-election cartoon because my clients will need something to put on their pages for Wednesday before they know who won. It’s kinda hard to draw these without making them suck.

One thing is for certain beyond Tuesday and that’s that a lot of doctors, nurses, and hospitals are going to still be dealing with the Trump Virus…partly thanks to Donald Trump’s super-spreader events. That’s MAGA for you.

No long blog again. That’s coming later today.

Tip Jar:This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care…

Monday Morning Wake-Up Call


We are all waiting and, maybe, holding our breaths!! … “I can’t control the outcome of anything that matters, but I can keep the birdfeeders full. I can sweep out the shed, rake up the leaves, and pull out the petunias. I can stay grounded in the simple, necessary tasks of my own life. And I can look at the sky, at the now bare maple tree, at the snow that covers the ground this morning in a frosting of white, and trust in the forces at work in the world that are far beyond my own limited seeing and my own narrow understanding.” – Katrina Kenison, from “Our Time” (October 31, 2020).

Live & Learn

“One way or another, we’re all white-knuckling our way toward Tuesday. I’ve probably made too many impulse donations to candidates I believe in, but I regret none of them. My husband, son, and I have written letters and held signs. In our small town, we’ll don our masks and vote in person. Beyond that, my approach during these last days has been to stay outdoors as much as possible. I can’t control the outcome of anything that matters, but I can keep the birdfeeders full. I can sweep out the shed, rake up the leaves, and pull out the petunias. I can stay grounded in the simple, necessary tasks of my own life. And I can look at the sky, at the now bare maple tree, at the snow that covers the ground this morning in a frosting of white, and trust in the forces at work in the world…

This is real simple. Go vote.

Tip Jar:This pandemic is hitting everyone, including your favorite goofy cartoonist. I have lost clients and I’m afraid I might lose more. The PayPal button has always been included here for those who can and want to voluntarily support what I do. I understand this time is hard on everyone. If you can’t, don’t contribute. Take care of yourself and your family first. But, all and any help is greatly appreciated and it helps keep me going. Think of me like a street performer busking out tunes on a corner (I won’t play “Wonderwall.” I promise). If you like the tune, or in this case, toon, throw a buck into the tip jar. It’ll help me play another song, draw another toon…
