Less Lead Time

I'm accustomed to the fact that popular entertainments, like comic strips, are on a long lead-time. Doonesbury, which has always been the most topical of comic strips, would lag current events by a couple of weeks as the artwork was created and then sent through the pipeline.

So it is with pleasant surprise that I see some notable "internet" cartoons, are reacting to the Saddam news within days.

    Did yuou see South Park tonite. They had a story line that gave major attention to the fact that Saddam was just captured by the Americans. They even used the picture of him looking all ragged that's been in the news.

    I was just blown away that they were able to do this soooo fast.

    There are of course a number of poitical (and other) cartoonists who are strictly web based and by the nature of the web HAVE to be fast. The two most popular I'm aware of, (just in case you aren't) are Day by Day by Chris Muir:

    and Cox and Forkum

    Sorry I don't know how to set up the links. I am, after all only a commenter and not a professional weblogger.
