The Unreality Show That Is Our National Life Seems To Have No Final Episode In Sight

The singular bright spot in the drear days of January 2018 came in the e-mail message from Tom/Dan that accompanied today's 'toon:

Hey all,

After all the recent upheaval in my life, this felt like the week that I really started to re-engage with the news, really started to get my head back in the game. It also felt like the week that I really started to settle into this strange new life as a single man in New York City, and even to embrace it. I have so many friends here, and am just beginning to wake to the possibilities of my life now. To quote a line from a lesser U2 song, “hit an iceberg in my life/but I’m still afloat.” It’s a moment of transition, to be sure, but as it turns out, it’s not all bleak. And that’s a pretty good feeling.


Good news from our 'toonist — there is light at the end of a tunnel. If only.... If this is a (fair & balanced) hope for an end to our lengthening national nightmare, so be it.
