Death panels

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

We cartoonists know our rights, so we show up for healthcare town halls armed with mighty pens, trying our best to do dead-on killer stuff. To the paranoid protesting pack, Tony Auth's South Lawn playground has grim reaper-cussions. Matt Bors' playful paraphrase of an apocalyptic aphorism comes to an unexpectedly upbeat conclusion. And my commander-in-chief executioner used a euthanasia euphemism to terminate old and tired discordant coverage.
