Greek Dancing

Euro, Europe, Eurozone, Greece, Bailout, economic crisis, Zorba, movie   : Dry Bones cartoon.
The economic Euro trouble means that for Greece to remain in the Eurozone they’ve got to become less Greek?

Thinking of a dancing fun-loving Greece brought to mind, for me at least, the image of Anthony Quinn as Zorba the Greek. I assume that nobody remembers Zorba these days, but for those of you who do, below is a shot from the movie.

Shale Oil

Shale, Oil, Israel, Negev, Technology, Saudi Arabia,   : Dry Bones cartoon.
The latest:

Oil Shale Initiative in Valley Where David Slew Goliath Could Turn Israel into an Oil Giant
New technology developed by Israel Energy Initiatives could make it possible for Israel to profitably produce oil from deposits previously inaccessible. Based on this technology, Israel may have 250 billion barrels of recoverable oil — nearly equaling the 260 billion barrels of Saudi Arabia. The Israel Energy Partnership is educating U.S. business and Jewish community leaders about this potential development. -more

In the last panel of today’s cartoon, Mr. Shuldig displays his best “I think somebody is trying to sell me something” face.

Occupy Wall Street

occupy wall street.   : Dry Bones cartoon.
Okay, so what do you think is behind it all?

Who do you think is carefully planning and secretly orchestrating the movement?

…Or do you think it’s a totally spontanious and leaderless snowballing mass movement??Nu?

Are We In a Depression?

mideast experts,  : Dry Bones cartoon.

Are we in an economic depression? Are we unwilling to admit it? Those questions sparked today’s offering, which is one of the cartoons I posted before leaving for China on a university speaking tour sponsored by SIGNAL (the Sino Israel Global Network Academic Leadership).

I plan to return home to Israel on or about November 1st.

School for Journalists

Journalism, Naive Newsman, Media, Turkey, Islamists, Israel,: Dry Bones cartoon.
Not long ago I came up with a new character. I called him the Naive Newsman.

I haven’t used him for a while, but last night, while discussing the growing isolation of Israel with a friend, I blurted out angrily that “The real enemy is the media!” …which reminded me of the Naive Newsman. And I began to think of the kind of training he had. And out popped today’s cartoon.

To see his earlier appearences click on Naive Newsman.
