Pardon My Planet


A few months ago, your editor chuckled over the attached cartoon by Vic Lee, creator of the cartoon strip “Pardon My Planet” which is syndicated in about 150 newspapers. While all of Lee’s cartoons make fun of human foibles, and especially our sense of what is “politically correct,” this one seemed particularly relevant to Geography. I asked Mr. Lee for permission to reproduce the cartoon and received the following response: “Bill, certainly, you have my permission to run the panel – and thank you for educating those who may one day have something to do with evolving our culture to one of logic and lucidity.” Wow, is that what I’m doing?
