Dear Carl,
The design of O-Man’s Harlequin costume is ancient. I didn’t make it up, but it seemed appropriate to him.
If it offends you, please accept my apology.

I said before that I find the depiction of Obama and his “half black, half white” costume offensive, and my comment was removed.

I thought the name of this place is “truthdig.” What is it about my truth that you don’t dig?

If it’s the same Alex (also a fine cartoonist!), I went to school with him in Saratoga.
Dave Dugan says hello!

That John Lee Hooker album art is classic.

Deep regrets for being unfair to vultures. More in this series can be seen at Yes I did the John Lee Hooker album art, and I have a son named Alex.

Sad to see unscrupulous humans be (depicted) equated with the (obviously more
intelligent and much less immoral) Vulture. Actually I find it insulting whenever a
human likens an evil human trait to a pre-conceived as ‘nasty’, wild animal. 
Shame on this cartoonist for a cheap shot… but then again, I expect nothing less
from humans. They are a sad and sorry lot that eventually, get what they deserve.

Great work to the point.  I hope to see Grossman’s work here regularly.  Will the Oligarh/O-man/MSM cabal manage to subdue those nasty OWS citizens upset about their ongoing rear end reaming?  Or will they learn to accept the ramming and their place in the new Amerika?  Stay tuned!

Nice work! Is this the same Robert Grossman that did the album cover art for “John
Lee Hooker’s Detroit”? Any relation to Alex Grossman?
