2016: A Year to Fear



This strip revisits an earlier cartoon, in which a 1990s couple is warned about future developments. Alas, I don’t have much confidence in the Russia revelations changing anything. If there’s one thing people fear more than dooming the planet, it’s rocking the boat.

    Fanatic Trumpsters who vent out their hatred, anger, and triumph remind me of the
    “indignant desert birds” of the poem.
