Tax cuts for the wealthy, a wealth of phone records, record home runs and Ken Lay's Enron run-in headed a long list of topics last week. But they were elbowed aside by the president's immigration speech, which got cartoonists up in arms and our hands busy. We drew tangles of wire (barbed, razor and concertina) atop miles of barriers (chain-link, concrete and steel), complete with moats, curtains, tunnels, gates and doors (slamming, swinging and revolving).
Paul Fell penned the impenetrable, Tony Auth set up straw National Guardsmen, and Mike Keefe added a Mart-Wal. But I say Steve Breen's inside-the-ballot-box thinking was headline-and-shoulders above the rest. Can't accuse me of straddling the fence. — Joel Pett
