As if the rabbi’s basketball fandom wasn’t enough, this weekend marks the beginning of the World Cup. I haven’t followed soccer since college, but it is in South Africa, so I love that. In honor of both of my loves, here are some Thursday cartoons.

So Iran’s a nuclear power now? At least they only have it for ‘peaceful purposes’.
There’s a lot of good cartoons out about Haiti, and all of the different sub-themes of that topic – Pat Robertson, the mess that Haiti was BEFORE the earthquake so lack of governance/infrastructure/UN ability to respond, how lucky the rest of us are in comparison. I’d really recommend Cagle’s Cartoons’ Haiti coverage.
Since all my favorite cartoons this week were Haiti related, I’m left with just a couple others. The first is the ‘Obstacle Course to Civilized Health Care’. The second is the one I’ve posted, a rather pretty illustration of the hole Google seems to have left in China’s wall.
I was supposed to go to the Newseum this morning w several other YPFP members to watch Sec. Clinton’s speech on internet freedom and instead ended up watching it from my couch w plenty of advil and a heating pad since I somehow managed to hurt my back last night rocking out to La Coterie (really, check them out. Well worth whatever pain I’m feeling). This actually turned out to be ok, bc I now have the opportunity to watch the live-stream of the related panel discussion, whereas YPFP left after Clinton.
I was traveling (vacation!) all last week so I didn’t post, but thought this cartoon would be fun. I really didn’t have any problems with security, but I’m sure those traveling closer to the holidays had a nightmare experience.
