Summer sausage

Joel Pett is the Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist at the Lexington Herald-Leader in Kentucky. His work also appears in USA Today.

Cartoonists can really put the spite in respite. Even when we're kicking back, contemplating the waning sunny days of summer, we find something to kick about. Signe Wilkinson's banner day at the beach was seasickening. Stephanie McMillan's domestic policy piece kidded about stay-at-home kids. And as the days grow ever shorter, so do Dan Wasserman's pharm-boys of summer. Dogging people, even in the dog days, that's a cartoonist's natural pastime.
