Joel Pett, Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist of the Lexington Herald-Leader, wrote a short piece on Sunday in the Los Angeles Times introducing four editorial cartons on stem cells, including one involving California.
Pett said, "Cartoonists tend to regard opposition to stem cell research as some blasto-Sisyphean exercise in futility, but Gary Varvel of the Indianapolis Star takes a more ethereal view. And both Signe Wilkinson and Nick Anderson remind us that California plays a leading role in the debate because of Alzheimer's icon Ronald Reagan and the state's recently passed stem cell research initiative."
Iraq, angels and slot machines all played a role in the cartoons. Here is the link to Pett's piece. Click on the names of the cartoonists to see the full display of the cartoon.
