  1. So Bill Nye goes to Texas a couple years ago and states that the moon reflects the sun’s light.

    And several Christian conservatives in the audience boo him for it.

    The stupid…it burns.

  2. Ed Darrell says:

    Turns out Jack Reese was a bullied kid from Mountain Green, Utah, who committed suicide. Information from Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/29/jack-reese-gay-teen-suicide_n_1462594.html

    A news story about an anti-bullying rally, in the Ogden Standard-Examiner: http://www.standard.net/stories/2012/05/01/vigil-speakers-urge-end-bullying-suicides-gay-teens

    A more direct news story in the Salt Lake Tribune: http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/54018293-78/bullying-gay-reese-edmonds.html.csp

    In that context, Bagley’s cartoon takes on even more meaning, and it looks a lot more brave.

  3. This is beautiful. I believe that there is still much power in political cartooning.
