Editorial cartoons: Riffing on Hu Jintao's visit, the irony of MLK Day and the inhumanity of repealing Obamacare
Cartoonists made short work of the holiday week. Tom Toles' GOP surgeon tried to short-circuit healthcare reform. What a cutup. Rob Rogers' candle-lit state dinner shortchanged the guest of honor. Hardly a happy meal. And my short-range calendar highlighted no shortage of issues that surely would have dismayed the holiday's honoree. I guess nonviolence, tolerance and unity have always gotten short shrift.
