Cartoon of the Week: Politesse






This week began with a poem, “Comfortingly”; then, on Tuesday, the latest Sequence of Events, in which Freda tries to see Martin and gets an odd sense of background activities afoot. Wednesday, “Not Wanted Here”, the ninth in the Tattersby arc of The Folly, has the Guest meeting the spirit of Roscoe Bevington. Thursday’s Catastrophe featured interviews with two sides of Martinique’s political divide; on Friday, another episode of Celebrated, Tom recalling his scheme to hide his guilt.
Images on my posts usually have a link to related information (click first image), sometimes serious, sometimes whimsical, sometimes in answer to a direct reference. Since people can be leery about links, I include them here: what they are, what sites they point to.
