I managed to pack a lot of issues into a single editorial cartoon this week. It’s really more editorial than cartoon, now that I look at it. If you want to know more about it:
- Michigan Radio did a five part series on the bridge issue: http://michiganradio.org/post/bridging-border-do-we-need-new-bridge-part-1
- Here’s an MLive story on the Keystone oil pipeline: http://www.mlive.com/news/kalamazoo/index.ssf/2012/03/upton_gas_event.htmll
- Here’s a Detroit Free Press graphic about past difficulties with the Morouns (owners of the Ambassador Bridge): http://www.freep.com/article/20120112/NEWS01/120112049/Interactive-graphic-What-MDOT-wanted-versus-what-Moroun-built
But really the two important takeaways here are: The cartoon is probably clever (assuming you’ve read all that other stuff), and the one guy in the second panel has a really big nose, which is funny.
