Historic Times (1997)

1997 Dry Bones cartoon: Living in Historic Times.
Ten years ago, in this Dry Bones cartoon from 1997, I sort of quoted the "old Chinese curse" of "May you live in interesting times."

Well, here we are, ten years later, in 2007... Really living in Historic Times.

In the wake of the Winograd Report that our government is incompetent and our army being mismanaged, the Israeli public's has to do something!!

Later today there'll be a massive demonstration in Tel Aviv for the removal of the Olmert crowd. In a "banana republic", some army general would take over... but our army is a citizen army, and given the assessment of the Winograd Commission, we, the people, need to take control of our army from the generals who are now running it.

We Israelis are able to stand up against our cruel enemies... now we've got to stand up and confront our incompetent leadership. Interesting and historic times.

I'll be at the at the demonstration.
