It has been a while since I’ve posted a new cartoon. To be honest, since the loss of my friend to a car accident I have been in a two-month creative canyon (think Mariana Trench) where nothing seemed funny and no amount of motivation could convince my hand to create. But as with most things, time has a way of regenerating creativity and it felt good to be at the drawing table again. Therapy, really. So, I apologize to my fans of this page and sincerely thank you for your patience and well wishes as I, and so many others, need to heal and come to terms with EJ’s death.

 Now, to the art. 

 They’re hardheaded. They dig their heels in. You know the type — people who are way too stubborn for their own, or the organization’s good. While it’s easy to point the finger at others who exhibit this behavior, it can be hard to recognize this trait in yourself. Too many times we are taken down by our own ego, or deep down the river of denial that our policies and decisions are heading for a devastating conclusion – the metaphorical cliff. What’s worse is that your decision to keep going in the same direction regardless of the signs to change course can take a good department and its people over the cliff with you. 

 Albert Einstein said “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” Sounds like a pretty smart dude. Perhaps there’s a lesson to be learned here, eh?
