No more island

I post this comic in commemoration of fiercely disputed New Moore island which has been inundated with sea water and is thus disputed no more. When I saw the original article posted elsewhere, I couldn't help but smirk at some readers' comments--spiked tea party folk who insisted that the island must be sinking because global warming was an impossibility. But then again, maybe I don't keep up with the news enough. Evidently, the U.S. recently became socialist. I must be the main character of my own Truman Show because I still see the same unemployment, collapsing infrastructure, unemployment lines, and wide rich-poor gap that I saw before our sudden socialist turn. Obamic socialism must only be affecting the rural white counties of South Dakota from which these people harken.

BBC's coverage was so surreal. It freaked me out that they were more interested about making snarky comments regarding the India/Bangladesh dispute than the larger significance of the story. I kept wanting to scream at the Editor, "Can you say, canary in a coal mine?"
