“What would you do with a brain if you had one”?

It is what it is… Love American Style. ‘Nuff said except…

What’s so funny ’bout peace about peace love and understanding?

Pangloss,
Very good observation about the views of Baum. I think that your contribution deserves a shout out from Mr. Fish. I know that he is quite articulate from his presentation at Vroman’s Book Store and his articles. Was Baum’s “interesting” position taken into account when drawing this multi dimensional offering?

No, I’m unfamiliar with Baum’s position. Will check it out. Thanks.

Strange juxtapose and I’m wondering how exactly to interpret the cartoon – i.e. is there more meaning in it than a simple reference to the movie. Maybe not, and if not, than I’d assume you’ve not read or chosen to skip Frank Baum’s association with genocide/ethnic cleansing/mass slaughter – see his Aberdeen Saturday Pioneer editorials:

A brain ? You don’t need no stinkin’ brain – just follow your orders and kill the people we tell you to kill (if you kill a couple of extra people, no harm done – we’ll just call it Ā«collateral damageĀ»)….
