Save the Whales; Feed them bin Laden

Scott Stantis, 5/12/11:

There's a deep philosophical argument that could be had about Americans growing tolerance for torture -- even though we all pretty much know it doesn't work in real life the way it does on 24 -- and how that correlates with our off-and-on love affair with quick and easy, "bullet through the brain" solutions to geopolitical problems.

This cartoon, on the other hand, is happy just to snicker, "Even hippies wanted bin Laden dead," and call it a day.
