Notations On Our World (Special Mid-Week Edition): Counterpoint Looks at Our World
Welcome to Counterpoint, where you will find original editorial cartoons from diverse perspectives drawn especially for you.
This week our almighty eight artists engage events from abundant angles. Front and center is the ongoing tussle over abortion rights in conservative states. In Virginia, yet another mass shooting lowers heads and raises questions. Donald Trump never escapes scrutiny and his recent overseas visit supplies our satirists with ample ammunition. Finally, John McCain looms large, once again.
