We recently (here) showed some illustrations by the "Father of the American Cartoon", Thomas Nast.
Australia has a rich vein of cartoonists. Of these bLOGOS/HA HA holds Bruce Petty in highest regard : for his grand inclusive view and the consequent representation of inter-connectedness; for his ability to show the big picture in the small (see below); for his wit and good humour; and always for the scribbly immediacy of his line.
Today is Melbourne Cup day. A public holiday in the State of Victoria for "the race that stops a nation". A nation with a newly elected Government whose first order of the new Parliament will be to 'Axe the (carbon) Tax'; a government sceptical about Climate Change and (therfore) for the first time in 82 years with no Minister for Science.
And much more in "The Sermon on the Mount"...Tony Abbott is demanding Labor “repent” for its support for a carbon tax (backing an efficient market to reduce greenhouse emissions is apparently, in the new prime minister’s estimation, a sin).
