Volcano

Tourism For Dummies


crsta11172017

This cartoon was published last week in The Costa Rica Star.

Several tourists hiking along a volcano in Costa Rica went beyond the warning signs and became stranded. Four Dutch tourists and one Costa Rican guide were caught in a rock slide after ignoring the signs. There were various injuries, including multiple bruises, a leg injury, a damaged arm, and a broken collarbone.

The complicated rescue was hampered by the terrain, cold, and rain. Fortunately for them, the volcano didn’t erupt. There have been times this year when as many as four have been erupting at once.

The only shocking information from this is that the tourists weren’t from the United States. They sound like Trump voters.

Tourists get on my nerves in Virginia. I can only imagine how aggravated you’ll become with them when they not only put their lives at risk, but also those of rescue personnel.

One of my favorite bumper stickers I’ve seen in Fredericksburg reads, “Tourists, go home. Leave your daughters.”

I want to thank everyone who has donated in the past. Your support helps me continue creating cartoons and columns with a little less stress in my life. Between competing syndicates with much larger resources, timid editors, and Trump supporters who attempt to intimidate the editors who do publish anything that criticizes their idol, it’s a challenge to make a career out of this. So your support (if you can) is appreciated.

Double, Triple, Quadruple Jeopardy In Costa Rica


crsta06302017

I’m sure you’re aware that one can’t be tried for a crime in the United States after a jury fails to convict them. This is the Double Jeopardy Clause. Though, as in the case of O.J. Simpson, one can be sued for committing a crime after a jury fails to convict.

They don’t have that in Costa Rica. Ann Patton, a super-wealthy person, was tried once, twice, three times, for the murder of her husband and now the nation may try her for the fourth time. She is in the United States and it’ll be interesting if our nation extradites her for something that would be unconstitutional here.

Costa Rica and Japan have both been after Paul Watson, the Sea Shepherd guy for years. Other nations have ignored their requests.

I drew a couple other ideas for this subject, but we settled on the volcanoes. Costa Rica currently has three erupting. The small nation has five active volcanoes. Experts say they’re not synchronized.

This cartoon ran on June 30. I meant to post it earlier, but I was doing things.
