Congrats to MARY MINOR for her scalding take on the present state of a party that needs every bit of reflected integrity it can get.
On a technical note, I got a question from the ever-prolific Tim Kelley who wondered that since there were two panels, didn't the form dictate a two caption solution? It's not surprising that Tim would come up with this question as Tim likes nothing better than a space in need of a caption.
My response is "Whatever works." The reason I drew the first panel was to establish the hoop
as a halo. If I were creating this for my regular spot in the opinion section, I would have felt no need to put a caption for the first panel alone.
One caption could tie the whole thing together, or it could even work with no caption. As Beckett remarked "Every word is like an uneccessary stain on silence and nothingness ..."
Then again as Art Spiegelman noted, this didn't stop Beckett. Nor you guys, either.
We'll stain it again next week, it's what we do.
