The wisdom of bumper stickers and anthropomorphic flowers
In the last twenty-four hours or so, I’ve seen the crisis of American foreign policy summed up in two unlikely places, on a bumper sticker and in this week’s Bob the Angry Flower comic.

I saw the bumper sticker on a car near Capitol Hill in Seattle. It had nice black script on a white background, but looked homemade.
Who Would Jesus Bomb?

Bob the Angry Flower puts the same question in a different form.

The coincidence of both of them showing up would be almost spooky if wasn’t—you know—not really spooky at all.
