Cartoon time

Ramon Ramirez used to do cartoons for The Monitor. He's still keeping his pen busy, as you can see. His take on state Sen. Juan "Chuy" Hinojosa's press conference after his arrest (and get-out-of-jail-free card-playing) for carrying a handgun through the airport security checkpoint appeared on the Channel 4 newscast the other night. Here it is in case you missed it:

Also, a story in The Monitor compares Hinojosa's case with that of another man caught with a gun at McAllen's airport six years ago. This poor guy, who also made an innocent mistake, didn't get his charge dismissed out of hand. Meanwhile, McAllen Mayor Richard Cortez says, what's with the different standards?

Speaking of the cartoonist, please visit his website and tell him hello or, better yet, offer him a commission.
