Some fine examples of how mainstream newspaper cartoonists handle a particular subject in such individual ways...NOT! The recent cartoons about the Israeli-Lebanon conflict also show a complete lack of originality of ideas and opinions. I can't fault the technical skills of these cartoonists. The artistry is fantastic. What good is the artistry if the cartoons have no real impact? My skills need to be much better but at least I make some attempt at not repeating someone else's ideas.
