Stop me if you've seen this one: Sweaty, forlorn dove tries to roll "Mideast peace" boulder up Mt. Sinai. Or this one: Sweaty, forlorn dove struggles with olive branch ... wait, those aren't olives, they're bombs! OK, so maybe a fresh approach to cartooning Mideast peace is as elusive as a fresh approach to the negotiations themselves. Many of us dismissed last week's confab on the peace process, irate about Iraq, fulminating on the photo-op. But Matt Davies' sweaty, forlorn dove more than pulled its weight. And further from Annapalooza but closer to the dispute, Lebanon's Bleibel imagined Iran could upset the table, while Jordan's Hajjaj keyed on refugee status. Gotta go, deadline calls: Let's see, is that a peace sign ... or a gun sight?
