What is this supposed to mean? That all Japan is is nuclear energy (and maybe now they are suffering at the hand of it?) Because that's what it looks like, and that's just tasteless.
Andrew, it's simply a commentary about the deteriorating nuclear situation in Japan. I applaud the fact that you have an opinion about something you admittedly do not understand.
I fully understand the situation and I also find it tasteless.
Spent quite some time in Japan and I don't find it tasteless at all, Rick. To me, it invokes feelings of sadness and sympathy for the plight of the Japanese as their country appears to be falling apart. Keep up the good work.
I agree with RC-135. The situation is sad and your cartoon embodies that. Stay with it.
Exactly how it was intended. Thanks, guys!
Brilliant Rick! Prayers for Japan...This could turn out to be where some of the Ocean is poisoned, maybe, maybe not....
Great Rick, make people think.
When you have to read the comments to understand what the political cartoon is about, it is a bad political cartoon.
You did a great job of morphing symbols Rick.
When you have to read the comments to understand what the political cartoon is about, it simply means you don't understand. That's all.
I thought that the interior of the rising sun falling apart represented the damage due to the quake, and when the exterior (coastal) pieces were falling out, that was symbolic of the damage due to the tsunami. Both forces combined to create the electrical power outages which seriously exacerbated the nuclear problem. Fascinating cartoon - made me think.
