Is "Strength" riding off into the sunset? Or, better yet, is "Strength" willing to meet "Enlightenment" halfway?
Oops..., I just realized this is about Sheriff Strength retiring and not some metaphor about the militaristic aggressive mindset as opposed to the seemingly bright intellectual optimism.
Really very nice cartoon, Rick.
This seems to be a cartoon about how a once strong country is being "transformed" into a weak, appeasement-oriented, failed secular humanistic western european banana republic by a metrosexual "man" who thinks he is enlightened but is as clueless as Neville Chamberlain. The 20th century was filled with these sorts, chanting "There is no evil." over and over until their tiny brainwashed minds actually believed it. Sadly, Stalin and Hitler proved their religion wrong. They were again proven wrong on 9-11. We all get to suffer for the cult of wishing away evil.
Or, it could just be a really kewl cartoon about a sheriff retiring.
Rick, this is a very touching cartoon. Thanks for sharing such talent.
I would vote for World Gone Crazy for sheriff. Good post.
Thanks, y'all! I think Sheriff Strength has done an incredible job and we owe him a debt of gratitude. He deserves a very relaxing and rewarding retirement.
