Cartoon of the Week: Got You Covered (?)

Crain's Detroit Business - June 10
In Michigan, we all know that auto insurance is expensive - too expensive. We also know there's a lot of debate regarding levels of coverage, "regional" pricing and related issues. Well, thanks to the bipartisan hard work of our legislators, all that was fixed with the recently passed auto insurance reform legislation. Now, premiums will go down, and we're still covered! Uh … right?
That's the Point!

Off the Drawing Board: This week's cartoon was a true collaborative effort with my CDB editor, Mike Lee. From these two original concept drawings, I took elements that became a much more effective presentation of the issue. The "hanging in the air" visual reinforces the uncertainty regarding this reform package; and the edited secondary gag more effectively supports the punch line.
