Cruel and Unusual Blues

I know it's sacrilege to mess with this song, but the days of Johnny Cash playing concerts in California prisons are over, replaced by Governor Jerry Brown whining about federal judges sticking their noses in our prisons.  Never mind the deaths, sterilizations and lack of clean water, among other things.

The Supreme Court ruled that the sponsors of Prop. 8 didn't have standing because they hadn't been harmed by same sex marriage in California.  I think some of those sponsors and their supporters would beg to differ.  Turns out it's very difficult to prove that you've been harmed by someone else getting married.  Go figure.
 
I've been doing cartoons about same sex marriage and gay rights since way back in the early nineties while I was living in Colorado in the days of Amendment 2.  I'm looking forward to cartoons about civil rights for same sex couples being a thing of the past.  I can't remember ever doing a cartoon that dealt with battles around miscegenation, except in relation to current battles over same sex marriage.
 
I guess I just couldn't resist kicking some of these guys while they're down.  Not to mention the fact I couldn't resist pointing out the silliness of an unmarried Catholic Cardinal heading the "Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage" warning of the evils of gay marriage, all while the news broke that he stashed Church money (in a cemetery fund, no less!) so sex abuse victims wouldn't have access to the cash.  Who comes up with this stuff?!
 
Be sure to let me know what you think about the cartoon, share and comment profusely!
