Because a Pic is worth a thousand words

Commentary on politics, society, culture and life in general...


From the complexities of single malt whiskey to Vladimir Putin electing Comrade Trump as President and undermining Democracy in Europe and the Middle East; to the beavers building dams 3 blocks from my Vancouver condo; to Brexit, Syria, Israel-Palestine, Manus Island and well beyond; to The War on Women, Human Rights, Climate Change, pipelines and protests;to the joys of jazz, opera, rhubarb pie and so much more...Miss Myrtle explains it all to you

  • Bombastic, bloviating, bullying buffoons are to be mocked and pilloried

  • To that end, political cartoonists from around the Globe are featured because a picture truly is worth a 1000 words

  • Those who refuse to learn from History, are doomed to repeat it

  • DO NOT be misled by Dezinformatsiya and Fake News. Refuse to be dragged Back To The Gulag!

  • Own your actions, no matter what they are-no passing the buck, ruble or Euro

  • If you must wear boots, make them of the steel-toed variety

  • You get the idea...
