CARTOONS of the DAY: Environmental Responsibility; Free Speech Irresponsibility

The News-Herald - April 27
Environmentalism becomes easier to practice, the more expensive fossil fuels become!
The Press & Guide - April 27
The Terry Jones free speech case drags on ... with the help of the Thomas More Law Center in Ann Arbor. Somehow, I have to believe that the organization's namesake would want to distance himself from this case.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Number-1 Fan

Crain's Detroit Business - April 25
Every team owner has his own personality - Mr. Davidson, longtime Piston's owner, certainly made his imprint on the team. New owner Tom Gores brings a new style and a new energy to his ownership. It may take some getting used to for some metro Detroiters - but it will be exciting to watch him make his imprint on this team, so badly in need of re-energizing.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Bunny Business

CARTOON of the DAY: Cooler Head?

The Press & Guide - April 20
A Christian pastor who practices Quran-burning and "forgets" about Good Friday and Easter when he plans to commit one of these horrible acts is neither a true Christian or a real pastor. We pray that cooler heads prevail if he goes ahead with this in Dearborn on April 22. (Note: A head that's "air cooled" does NOT qualify as a cooler head.)
That's the Point!

Dearborn Heights, like so many Michigan cities, is struggling to balance its budget. But cutting your way to a balanced budget is not always the answer.

CARTOON of the Day: Delivery Dilema

The News-Herald - April 10

That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: Winning and Swimming (or not)

The News-Herald - April 6
A casino in Romulus may be a winning idea; but better not "Winning" like Charlie Sheen!
The Press & Guide - April 6
Will kids in Dearborn be splashing away the hot summer months this year, or will they have to find other diversions? Depends on the budget - just like everything else.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: Feel the Warmth!

The News-Herald - April 3
Sometimes it's just about recognizing everyday heroes in our community - and in this case, the Lincoln Park Fire Department, Servpro and Superior shared some "warmth" that should warm the hearts of everyone Downriver.
That's the Point!
