Editorial Cartoon: Egypt

Chattanooga Times Free Press

What a week this has been. For Egypt – and for everyone who has tried to keep track of what was happening and make sense of it. As for my part, I watched live-streams, browsed through live-blogs, looked at images, read analyses and commentary on the matter. However, what stuck with me the most at the end of the week was one simple cartoon. It masterly boils the situation down to its essence and thus got me thinking for quite a while.
