I must confess that with all the fake news floating about and so much propaganda, material that properly belongs on the Op-Ed pages, being inserted into the reportage of hard news, my daily newspaper reading is gravitating more to the puzzle pages and the comic section.

This is not entirely a bad thing.  Those guys and gals who labor over comic strip story lines sometimes show true genius.

As a fiction writer I sometimes feel that the rewards reaped for my efforts fall somewhat short of that which I might have anticipated.  I can only assume that others share this feeling.

I was in this mindset when I came across the following “Crankshaft” cartoon.  I hope that it brings a smile.
