Drawing the Big Three's woes

Beetle Bailey and Wile E. Coyote got nothin' on editorial cartoonists. We all love a high-mileage visual gag. What rescues these three Big Three concepts from plunging to the canyon floor of clunker cliches (accompanied by slide-whistle glissando) is that each retools a classic setup, drives home a different point, plugs a distinct line. Dana Summers excoriates execs for a time-lapse of creativity; Nick Anderson hangs firm with working stiffs; and David Horsey ponders a tricky economic escarpment escape. Where's Sgt. Snorkel when Beetle needs a bailout?!
