The Cartoon Lounge: Love Is the Answer



Now, what was the question again? What makes the world go round? Hmm, love is a true enough answer in song, but in physics its inertia that keeps this old world spinning round. Be that as it may, there is no day celebrating inertia, whereaswe do have one dedicated to love, love, love, which, as I demonstrate in this episode of The Cartoon Lounge, is all you need, need, need. And chocolates. Dont forget the chocolates for your sweetie. If the love thing doesnt pan out, you can eat them yourself.

Cartoon Lounge: Turning Over a New Leaf



In this episode of The Cartoon Lounge, we turn over (and otherwise mishandle) leaves that are not only old but dead. Makes sense. Thats what makes autumn autumn.

The Cartoon Lounge: Pezident of The United States



I speak to you today not as a Republican, or as a Democrat, or as an autocrat, technocrat, plutocrat, or an aristocrat (although I am all of those, and much, much less). No, I speak to you today, in this episode of The Cartoon Lounge, as this Pez Head likeness of myself.

The Cartoon Lounge: Him Robot; I Robert



Actually, the robot in this video is gender neutral, which is how I like it, except on Westworld, where Im O.K.with robots being entertaining, homicidal sex machines.

The Cartoon Lounge: Thinking Inside the Box



The phrase think outside the box gained popularity in the early nineteen-nineties. By 1998, the term was ubiquitous enough that this great Leo Cullum cartoon could play off it:

The Cartoon Lounge: Nothing but Net



More than half a century ago, I was a starter for my high-school basketball team. Thats me over on the left, in the first row, wearing a T-shirt to hide the enormously overdeveloped musculature in my arms.

William Finnegan: The struggle for immigration reform.



It was edifying while it lasted. A bipartisan immigration bill, supported by an unusually wide coalition of business, labor, church, and humanitarian groups, made its way through the Senate Judiciary Committee last week. Elsewhere on Capitol Hill, the baying over Benghazi and the Internal Revenue Service was fierce and rising...
