Bivalent Boosters   Recently updated !

Read the comic on Patreon.

I had a bivalent booster shot scheduled this week, but it was canceled the night before due to shortages. Fingers crossed that my rescheduled appointment has the booster juice next week.

The rollout for this round of boosters is atrocious. It wasn’t great last fall, with only 30% of those eligible getting one; and that winter saw omicron and a peak of 4,000+ deaths a day in January. Maybe the plan to let everyone get it and let eugenics do the rest will mean less death this time around, but whistling past a million dead to get back to “normal” has let out the sociopath in all of us.

Get the booster, wear a mask in enclosed public spaces, and get the flu shot too. There are still people who can’t do any that who are relying on the rest of society to create an environment that’s safe enough for them to return to.

Fall TV Premieres   Recently updated !

Read the comic on Patreon.

There’s a strike going on at a Boston Starbucks that’s the longest in that franchise’s recent wave of workers demanding to paid fairly for slinging glorified milkshakes.

Every other panel is about another news thing. I had to hedge a bit with the supply chain, since there’s a tentative agreement with railroad workers, but I’ve been experiencing random things being out of stock ever since we decided to let COVID rip through workplaces.

As for actual TV shows, summer seems to be when they put out a lot of the good ones, and FX/Hulu are putting out bangers. Reservation Dogs, This Fool, The Bear, What We Do in the Shadows, are all worth checking out if the fall garbage isn’t for you.

CNN’s New Roster of Rogues

Read the comic on Patreon.

Cable news has been garbage forever, but now CNN in angling to be a Fox News clone. Outside of breaking national news, these channels are only watched by shut-ins and DC insiders who leave this garbage on as background noise every day, poisoning their brains (and our government) in the process.

Says the cartoonist who leaves Twitter open on another monitor the entire time he was drawing this.

GOP Midterm Messaging

Read the comic on Patreon.

You don’t roll out a new advertising campaign until after Labor Day. With the midterms coming up, the GOP is in need of a new one. They’re currently polling lower than Democrats, which is surprising if you have the same view of Democratic leadership as I do.

This could all change in two months, but for now, it’s nice to see them ineptly flailing about for once.

Ron DeSantis’s Back-to-School Rules

Read the comic on Patreon.

Florida governor Ron DeSantis and Republicans in general have spent years demonizing teachers and cutting their funding, and are now dealing with teacher shortages as the school year begins. They’re sending cops and troops in to fill the vacancies, which I’m sure will end well.

One thing I’ve learned the last year or so of drawing this guy is that he’s always doing a third-rate Trump impression. He went to fancy schools, and can never nail it without adding a car dealership vibe to Trump’s awfulness.

Impression critique aside, he’s a fascist actively planning to steal elections. And unfortunately, Florida still has a lot of electoral votes that could decide the fate of the entire country.

Inside Trump’s Treason Trove

Read the comic on Patreon.

Will there be consequences for the classified material Trump kept at Mar-a-Lago? Probably not, but it is still very funny. Better than him actually killing a guy on 5th Avenue and nothing happening.

Alex Jones’ Nonlitigable Conspiracy Hole

Read the comic on Patreon.

Alex Jones lost his defamation case and owes the families of Sandy Hook victims $45 million for saying they’re faking. There were a bunch of shenanigans during the trial. People who breathe the same air as you and me watch him and take him seriously, making him rich enough to probably use appeals and bankruptcy court to continue entertaining them for years to come.

David Brooks’ Working Class Safari

Read the comic on Patreon.

The entire media industry is collapsing, for lowly cartoonists like me all the way up to the makers of prestige HBO shows. But if you’re a columnist who’s made being weird and wrong your thing, you can keep pumping out a couple hundred words of nothing and keep cashing those checks in perpetuity.
