back to the usa

Good morning! For those of you who didn’t read my last entry carefully, you’ve been missing my posts over at, where I’ve been faithfully blogging about my six weeks in southern Africa. Go check it out, dudes and dudettes.
I got back to this fine country of ours Saturday night after an epic journey — three continents in one looooong day. I was slightly insane by the time I got to Flight Hour 18 or so, but I can report I’m safely reacclimated to the land of McDonald’s and Krispy Kremes and prescription drug benefit debates and other such niceties. Perhaps in a couple days I’ll even stop sleeping from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m.
To jumpstart the ol’ crabwalk style, I point you to this article in Friday’s Post, which argues that Johnny Hart, geriatric creator of the comic “B.C.,” most likely slipped an anti-Muslim message into this strip on Nov. 10. Now, I love Gene Weingarten (the reporter) and I know Hart’s past as a funny-pages proselytizer, but doesn’t this border on the absurd? Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar.

  1. Wow.
    I find it incredibly fascinating what people will look for when reading a cartoon! I mean, an article maybe…but a cartoon? Much less a bathroom humor cartoon? What is this world coming too?
    Anyways, welcome back! Loved the pix and stories on Zambia.
