think and hope this is a funny joke about flamingos and other lawn ornaments, but I almost scrapped it for fear that merely mentioning lawn jockeys would offend someone.

What a fun time in history to be an American writer.  You know, I may not put overt politics into the strip, but I am going to say it here.  This is one of the reasons I support Senator Obama.  The main thing that stuck with me from his amazing speech on race was the message that we all need to stop running in terror from the topic.

This is a flamingo joke.  I don’t want to hear any knee-jerk “I’m offended” comments unless you are a flamingo.  Tongue

EDIT: Actually I bet flamingos have amazing knee-jerk reactions.
