My warmup sketch for today’s comic was inspired by this upcoming law that will let Texans carry swords.
Other than linking to the original KC Green comic, do I even need to write an annotation? If only for historical context, here’s a link where the headline says it all. This maelstrom of fire has all been building up for a while now, despite the protestations of the satsuma-hued man at its centre. People have been comparing everything to Watergate during Trump’s presidency, waiting for the abrupt crashing down of everything to ensue, and then being frustrated when all we get is a gradual dripping of scandalous/treasonous information, that doesn’t seem to blow everything open. But the slow drip is what got Nixon, too. We tend to forget that Watergate wasn’t a sudden revelation that brought him down overnight; it was months upon months of bickering over the particulars that eventually wore away his credibility.
