Will He Set His Hair on Fire?

Ross Gosse, 5/30/11:
As you may have heard, noted philanderer (and possessor of one of the truly magnificent heads of hair in politics) John Edwards is being investigated by a grand jury for improperly funneling his campaign funds to paying off the mother of his illegitimate child.

What you didn't hear -- and wouldn't have connected to John Edwards even if you did -- is that the 300-year-old anchor of pirate Edward Teach (aka Blackbeard) was recently raised, and is destined to be displayed in the North Carolina Museum of History.

The two things still have nothing to do with each other...unless you remember the cartoonist's mantra: when a deadline is looming, Two Things Make a Cartoon.
