Doug Marlette

Cartoonist, Doug Marlette was killed in a traffic accident the other day.
RALEIGH, N.C. -- Doug Marlette, the Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist who recently turned his incisive wit toward a budding career as a novelist, died Tuesday in an auto accident in Mississippi. He was 57.

Marlette, who split his time between Hillsborough and Tulsa, Okla., and was visiting Mississippi to help a group of high school students with the musical version of his syndicated comic strip, "Kudzu." He had just delivered the eulogy at his father's funeral Friday in Charlotte, N.C.
As a political cartoonist, he was an equal opportunity offender, but lately he'd been facing up to the Islamic threat in his cartoons. As a reminder of how powerful a cartoon can be, I swiped my favorite, one that earned him the ire of the "Religion of Peace," and reprinted it below.

I like this cartoon quite a bit. Makes me sad that I will not see more like this(from him) But I find comfort that the PC crap is waning on the internet and the ROP is being outed more and more!

Now if only our leaders would pay attention.

Oh, I did not know! So sad! What a loss of talent.
