The big political story this morning is Governor Chris Christie’s bridge problem.  Apparently a couple of Christie’s political hacks, obviously still in a high school state of mind, decided to stick it to a political opponent by creating a massive traffic problem on the George Washington Bridge.  Christie is scheduled to make a statement today at 11am, so more on that later.  Another interesting story to catch my eye early this morning was this from the LA Times:Screen shot 2014-01-09 at 8.00.00 AMSome of you may know I used to work for Disney, so I do have some insight about the whole issue of women and the animation industry.  Too much to talk about right now, but I am looking forward to seeing what the animation blogs make of this.  Meanwhile, here’s a quick sketch of Streep, one of my favorite actors:MerylStreep

These photographs by Dina Goldstein are great; I especially love the Rapunzel one.  There’s a short interview where the creator explains how her princess-obsessed daughter was her motivation behind the series.   I did several comic strips along the same line during my Six Chix days.  Here’s the title page from the chapter “Happily Ever After” in my book, Humor’s Edge:HumorsEdgeHappilyEverAfter
