O Little Town of...Huh?

Jeff Darcy, 12/25/12:
Not to be blasphemous, but is Darcy really saying that God must really like the sites of US mass killings, since He allows so many of them? (Along the line of Darwin's postulate on beetles?)

If not, what does this mean? That God pays more attention after something bad happened? Or just that people are more pious after a tragedy?


  1. Darwin didn't say it -- J. B. S. Haldane did.

  2. There are twenty-six smaller stars surrounding the larger one.

    Presumably the cartoonist wants us to know that the souls of the murdered have all ascended to heaven.

    Yes, even the Jewish one. This is no time to be doctrinaire.


Please remember that the purpose of Editorial Explanations is to explain and to expand knowledge, rather than to engage in any partisan bickering. All cartoonists are completely correct, in their own worlds.
