"Such is glamour in the age of lunatics with guns."

NOTE TO READERS:

We are trying our very best to ease back into posting, which will likely be spotty for a few days as we regain our composure following Paddy's untimely death. We are still reeling, doing what we can to keep TPC going and figuring out changes in format.

So please bear with us, and thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for caring, commenting, and donating to her family to help them with funeral arrangements. You mean the world to us, and always did to our Paddy.

Life goes on...

David Horsey Golden Globes

The talented cartoonist David Horsey commented on one aspect of the Golden Globes that I hadn't seen anywhere else: Security at show biz awards shows, or as I like to call it, guns 'n' poses. The panel above was one of four.

In my morning edition of the Los Angeles Times, he added a line to the above comic that the online version inexplicably left out:

"Such is glamour in the age of lunatics with guns."

All that was missing was:

"Who are you wearing?"

"Glock!"

This particular strip points out the irony of the film industry which makes zillions of dollars on movies that regularly feature (and profit from) violent and graphic depictions of homicides, shoot-outs, all sorts of crimes, and of course, suicides, all at the point of glorified guns.

    The irony fairly drips from this scene.

    I hate the NRA. I hate the Glamorization of Guns. But Gun-totting Dame, you complete me. ;D
