|Read any Chalmers Johnson lately? |
also did you draw yourself into panel 4 ?
See how i'm being nice and not asking about the notable absence of prostitutes in this cartoon? :) -- a cruel borat stereotype

|I haven't revsisited Chalmers Johnson in years. It's a bit more complicated than Johnson's take on things - he's neither right nor wrong- I will happily discuss this with you later over a cup of tea, -or grog, if you prefer...
The individual in panel four is an officer and not bespectacled, so he is definitely not me. heh. But being overnight aircrew in the same situation, you could say that panel is direct-experiential based.
I saw no evidence of prostitution -but I wasn't looking, so maybe it was there. Anyhow, it's not really a huge problem when there are plenty of opposite sex types serving with you. (not like in the wars of old, that's for sure.)
But Borat's sister would not have been very far away- just over the border to the west!

|Crenshaw- Those are the very ones.
Ixia- heh! The best thing in that whole movie were the end credits with all of the wonderful soviet stock footage. And the "national anthem"- we can't forget that, either!
