Growing Problem

Dry Bones cartoon: Michelle Obama's Organic Vegetable Garden.
The story:
"When First Lady Michelle Obama planted an organic vegetable garden on the White House lawn in March 2009, she hoped to both set an example of healthy eating and to grow tasty edibles for her daughters and husband. But Michelle's organic dream has been dashed by a nasty toxic legacy lurking in the soils of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. It turns out that a previous Presidential gardening team had used sewage sludge for fertilizer." -more

The cartoon:
I haven't done a six-panel Dry Bones cartoon in years ...but the length of the script forced me to use the format again ...and I'm pleased with the result.

The title of the cartoon:
"Growing Problem" has a double meaning. The second, subtle one, is a recognition that on many fronts, things seem to be going wrong for the current administration ...and at an increasingly rapid rate ...and that this is indeed a growing problem for Obama.

Or is it just me?
