Why is Steve King wasting his time in Iowa?

Representative Steve King has been getting a lot of bad press lately. That is not nice for such a Godly person who is so beloved by his constituency. He should not be wasting his time up here in Iowa when he could be a committed pastor for a Southern Baptist church in rural Alabama. Actually, that is an insult to all the Southern Baptist pastors in rural Alabama. Extreme conservatives in other parts of the country would not want him moving in on their territory. I guess he will have to stay in Iowa and continue to be our biggest embarrassment. Oh, well, he loves it.

Can you bring Tom Tomorrow’s ‘This Modern World’ cartoon strip back?

This was the best of Cityview and is featured in alternative dailies around the country! On half (sic) of any intelligent people who need an intelligent cartoon please, please, please, bring it back!

(Editor’s note: Alternative dailies? Now that’s an oxymoron. “This Modern World” publishes in about 80 newspapers around the nation, which is exactly why it won’t publish here. We prefer “intelligent” opinions from local professionals like Brian Duffy, and the bulk of our readers do, too. Meanwhile, tell your cousin hello for us.)
