If This Male Bovine Excrement Is "The Price Of Freedom," Close This Blogger's Account

Today's TMW 'toon was accompanied by Dan's expansive summary of his September trip to Italy. Read a concise summary from Tom/Dan's blog here. The 'toon introduction was short'n sweet today:

That's enough [Italian travelogue] for now, I'll share more next week!

Dan (aka Tom)

Upon his return to the States, Tom/Dan and the rest of us had to endure another mass shooting in Las Vegas. In a short turn-around, Tom/Dan brings back an earlier character — the sociopathic gun-nut in a solioquy from his basement bunker. The best part comes in the final panel with a sly jab at the former Faux News blowhard, Bill O'Really and his idiotic take on the Las Vegas Massacre. If this is (fair & balanced) whistling past the mental treatment center, so be it.
