Booknote: _The Best Political Cartoons of the Year 2005_
Just finished reading The Best Political Cartoons of the Year 2005 edited by Daryl Cagle and Brian Fairrington. I just picked it up on impulse upon seeing it on the new books display at work yesterday. As it is a light book, it took me no time to get through it. Since last year was a political year with the U.S. election and other topics, a lot of the cartoons dealt with that, but there were also many others dealing with a variety of topics. Some of the ones I liked most, maybe because they bring nice memories, were the ones drawn as tributes to dead celebrities such as Christopher Reeve and Rodney Dangerfield. The book was amusing, but it also brought back memories of the last year. If anyone is looking for a quick light read, regardless of political beliefs, for there is something in here for everyone, this is a good book.
