Cartoons For Today

I'm just posting cartoons because at about 1pm this afternoon, frickin' frackin' frellin' Blogger deleted my post right before I was ready to publish. I lost two hours of work. ARGH! And then my house filled up with 6 - 7 year old boys for a birthday party.

Liu Bolin's Disappearing Act

CAN YOU SPOT THE INVISIBLE MAN, LIU BOLIN?
Interestingly I think this artist undoes his work by putting himself in or near the center of his photographs. Still, his work is impressive. My favorite and quite frankly probably the artist's bravest image below.

Small Darth Vader

It's funny because it's fun for parents to mess with their kids!

Daily Round-Up 02-04



HC gives Shariatpur admin 15 days to tell why it could not save life of 14-year-old rape victim
The reports said Hena was raped by her 40-year-old relative Mahbub on Sunday. Next day, a fatwa was announced at a village arbitration that she must be given 100 lashes. She fell unconscious after nearly 80 lashes.

Fatally injured Hena was rushed to Naria health complex where she succumbed to her injuries.

The Story of the Egyptian Revolution

Diplomatic Scramble as Ally Is Pushed to the Exit

When you listen to the news reports coming out of Egypt and the Middle East, buried deep are generally references to rising food costs. Why are they rising? Ask the asshats who think we should burn corn in our cars. Authoritarian governments start stockpiling food to fight public anger. Authoritarian governments across the world are aggressively stockpiling food as a buffer against soaring food costs which they fear may stoke popular discontent. There have been numerous food riots in China, India, Brazil in the past 24 months thanks to ethonal and unless we stop this wasteful behavior, more and more poor will starve.
