The Kobe and Vanessa Bryant approach to relationships [Rall cartoon]
Kobe and Vanessa Bryant seem to be heading toward a bizarre combination: marital bliss coupled with legal (financial) divorce. In his weekly cartoon, Ted Rall imagines where else such odd -- yet beneficial -- arrangements are taking place, from the campaign trail to Afghanistan. Are Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum secretly on the same team? Does President Obama have an arrangement with the Taliban we don't know about -- is the "legal war" for show? Rall's take: "It's very weird -- but a relief from the usual arrangement: legal marriage/de facto estrangement."
