Through a Looking Glass, Darkly
I received a note this morning from a fan who reminded me of an illustration I did for Truthdig almost four years ago. He suggested that the image might have greater relevance now than when it was originally posted, which is, unfortunately, true. So, in the interest of forcing our collective faces back to the instructive commentary offered by the deep, dark, truthful mirror, I present this cartoon, not as proof of our defeat at the rope-burned hands of bigots and soulless automatons of institutionalized bigotry and hick paranoia, but rather as a battle cry, calling to action the hearts and minds of better men and women poised and ready to fight peaceably for a kinder and more tolerant future.
