Bibi and the U.S. President (1998)
January 04, 1998
I often have fun wondering where we were and what was going on 10 and twenty years ago. I don't do crosswords or Suduko's, I'm not interested in Horoscopes or Sports, But if a newspaper has a 25 years ago this month kind of feature, I always read it. So when I began the Dry Bones blog back in 2005 I decided to have two Golden Oldies each week.Sometimes I look for cartoons that are pertinent to current events, but mostly I like to just see what was going on in the "Old Days". Today I decided to take a peek at January 1998, fifteen years ago this month.Interesting, hey? Your thoughts?

Islamists are conductiong an effective effort to conquer the world for their god , to repress women, to destroy the Jews, and to repress and subject everyone else. They are now makig a major African move in Mali.So I'm either simply stating the facts of life in our ties, or I'm an out of control hysteric, a racist who hates people of color, and a dangerous Islamophobe.Your opinion?

Israeli Election Day
Election Day in Israel was declared a national holiday and the weather was gorgeous. The public voted and then most of us went to the beach, to cafes, or shopping for the rest of the "day off". It was a delightful, very Israeli experience. Everyone seemed happy and up about being who and what we are. In the morning we found that we've handed our politicians a classic Israeli post-election dilemma. It feels so very Israeli and nostalgic that I did today's cartoon in Blue and White.

Syria: Local Viewpoint
What do you do when the real story is different from the politically correct story being told on Western TV? If you're a cartoonist, you do a cartoon.

Fixing the System (1999)
July 30, 1999
Israel ís now in the middle of another Knesset campaign. Every campaign is accompanied by suggestions about how to "fix"our electoral system. Today's cartoon is from 1999, the last year of the last century, when we actually tried a new system. We then became unsatisfied with the "fix" and went back to where we are today, i.e. comfortably complaining about the system and figuring out which party to vote for.

the Fix We're In

December 3, 1984
Israel ís being hit by a massive storm. Were all hunkered down against the torrential rains ...and what appears to be oncoming snow in our mountainous regions like the Golan, the Galilee, Safed, and, of course Jerusalem. It sort of feels like the old days, nostalgia for back when we heated our homes with kerosene ("neft", in the Hebrew-influenced English we locals speak) ...so I'm running this Oldie today from 1984.

The Very First Dry Bones
January 1, 1973
I thought it would be fun to show you the very first ever Dry Bones cartoon. The oldest possible Oldie"... published 4o years ago on Jan 1, 1973, in the Jerusalem Post. The two characters In the cartoon are chatting with each other but are facing the reader (I hadn't yet figured out the "profile" approach).
The two government clerks are each enjoying a pastry and a cup of tea (A traditional 10 AM tea break in Israeli offices back then). The two characters have remained an important duo in the cartoon through the years. Now, of course they face each other. One with glasses, the other with a mustache . BTW, to see the Jerusalem Post Magazine report on our anniversary click on DRY BONES AT 40.
