A Cartoon for Rose

For my daughter who did this:

Budgets are Moral Documents (sidewalk around the Capitol building)
 and this:

"Hoop for Justice"

comes this absolutely perfect cartoon from P.S. Mueller:

Child hula-hooping with the "O" from a chalked "Obama"

Mueller didn't know he was drawing it for Rose, but he was.  I'm going to send him this blog post and tell him so.

The only thing that would make it even more apropos would be to dress the disapproving lady in a Madison Capitol Police outfit, since chalking now seems to be on the list of criminal activities since the Walker administration crackdown on First-Amendment-protected political expression in the latter part of 2012.

(Next post will be Thanksgiving, with heaping helpings of Joy!)

That's awesome. Do you mind if I appropriate the picture? When I teach budgeting to my parks and rec students, I always start with a discussion of budgets as moral documents. I'd love to throw this into my PowerPoint. :)

Aunt Linda, for that most-excellent purpose, you may use any photo from any of our "Budgets are Moral Documents" posts you want! Just let me know if you want hi-res versions. :-)
