With Leap Year (and Leap Day) aligned with a presidential election year like this one, it's hard to consider the extra day a bonus, isn't it? Here are two takes on the subject, from my Crain's Detroit Business cartoon of Monday, February 22 and my News-Herald cartoon of Sunday, February 28.

There's no more welcome sign of the coming spring than the phrase "pitchers and catchers report." Lakeland may be 1,170 miles from Detroit via I-75, but just knowing the pitchers and catchers are there stretching and getting ready for spring training warms millions of hearts in the metro Detroit area. Tigers fans, it won't be long until, "... the voice of the turtle is heard in the land!" That's the Point!
