This cartoon was in response to the idea that there is a connection between rape and alcohol consumption by women, that women should be blamed for a rape if they drink too much. It originally appeared on The Nib, a section of Medium. Medium is a new blog platform created by twitter, and The Nib is a section that posts a variety of great political cartoons a comics from different people. It is curated by political cartoonist Matt Bors.
Its good that our government is back at work, that our legislators managed to find a way to compromise. I read on twitter that some think House Leader John Boehner should get credit for the end of the shutdown. And so I was inspired to draw the above cartoon. It can also be found on Medium’s The Nib, and Women’s Enews.
Exciting news that our new chair of the Federal Reserve may be Janet Yellen. Does it mean anything in regards to Hillary? Some may think so. Read more on my Forbes blog!!
I am very excited about the new pairing of Judy Woodruff and Gwen Ifill as co-anchors on the PBS NewsHour–they will provide us with a wonderful new perspective. But I have some thoughts as to how groundbreaking it really is. Read my Forbes column for more!

The candidate for the Mayor of New York City, Anthony Weiner, is making a lot of news lately. And not good news, at least for him. Good news for cartoonists and humorists. Here is my post on Forbes.com on this very odd, but in some ways not untypical, politician.
Freedom means being able to chose how to celebrate the 4th of July. Flags, beer, hot dogs, fireworks, stay home and sleep….whatever you want. It also means being able to chose whom you want to marry. Happy Fourth of July everyone! Read a slightly longer post here, on my Forbes Column.
What a busy week! Something for (almost) everyone. Civil Rights, Voting Rights, Gay Marriage Rights, Immigration Rights and Abortion Rights. It’s hard to know what to focus on as a cartoonist. I could cartoon all of them, but actually I can’t. So I chose to draw about the amazing filibuster by Senator Wendy Davis and her colleagues (and the crowd!) in Texas, which I found fascinating. Sadly, it won’t stick: Governor Rick Perry has scheduled another session and the bill to virtually end a woman’s right to chose in Texas will pass. Here is my take on my column on Forbes.com–with a slightly different cartoon.
