[CARTOON] Metallica




Inspired by a true event. I think it was about 10 years ago when I was listening to a local "Top 40" countdown when some DJ filling in for the regular guy was doing okay, until he reached the #5 song by the band he mis-pronounced as "Metal-leek-ah". Kind of takes the "edge" of their image.

[CARTOON] Bell Canada Takeover




Recently Canada’s Supreme Court gave the go-ahead for a private equity consortium to proceed with the C$51.8 billion takeover of Bell Canada Enterprises (Canada's largest phone company). The buyer is a Teacher's Pension Plan, which inspired this cartoon.

[CARTOON] Cooling Centers




A cooling center is a temporary air-conditioned public space set up by local authorities to deal with the health effects of a heat wave. Combine that with global warming, and you get this week's cartoon.
