A caring mayor? What’s next? Talking pictures?

This week’s cartoon requires a bit of explanation to those not from Sooke. We recently had our city council elections. The two mayoral candidates took to the road with banner-waving campaign (reflected in some of my earlier cartoons). Wendal Milne won by a landslide. And what really shocked me was that after the election, Milne once again took his team to the roadside, this time waving “Thank You” banners. I think it was the first time I’ve ever noticed a politician thanking the people in such a grass-roots manner.

Now I’ll shut up. Here’s the cartoon:

Sooke News Mirror missed posting my cartoon online last week, but it did make it to press. This week’s cartoon:

Cartoons on writing letters to the editor

Okay, so it didn’t make the electronic newspaper, but it did make the print copy. Man we’re long-winded out here in Sooke!! No word of lie, some letters run for columns. I read the first three sentences. If they haven’t made their point by then, they really should take a writing class. Sheesh!
