Cartoon Strip: Nota Bene by Leonardo No. 76 - Why Do Zeta Reticulans Hate AmericaGlen Bledsoe Salem-News.com
This is the seventy-sixth installment of the Salem-News.com original series "Nota Bene by Leonardo" by Salem cartoonist Glen Bledsoe.
(Earth) - Well, the folks from Zeta Reticuli have lowered what few social filters their highly-developed brains possessed and are pretty much telling it as they see it. They aren't so perfect, are they? Their conversational English is pretty good, but can they rap?
And I bet their entertainers are pretty boring--probably at the level of a Jerry Lewis or Durward Kirby. What do you say, America? Let's show them that we can do the right thing and turn this Bush mess around. We've got an election coming up, and when America puts its mind to something, America doesn't fail.
Let's return to the principles of democracy. Let's ban torture. Let's develop an energy policy that won't bankroll our enemies and destroy the world we live in.
Let Zeta Reticulans return in fifty years and we'll give them an all-expense trip to the north pole where they can shiver their little ischial tuberosities and visit with the polar bears. I say, let's do it!
