Big Love is stupid and Big Mama ain't far behind. And Sparky the Wonder Penguin put the bite on The Newtron. It doesn't get much better. "This Modern World" illustrates that art can imitate life. Tom Tomorrow's work is worth a million 'toons by the likes of Bob Gorrell, Michael Ramirez, or Chuck Asay. The local fishwrap carries all of these cartoonists in the interest of "balance." The pro-Dumbo 'toonists are as funny as a rubber crutch. This blog is honored to feature "This Modern World" every Monday. (And both John Sherffius and Ben Sargent every now and then.) If this is (fair & balanced) admiration for the descendants of Herblock, so be it.
