  1. I really enjoyed these cartoons. So funny. The one with the man reading the paper reading nothing but bad news until he got to the baseball section was wonderful. The St. Louis team visiting (were we expecting the Browns?) is really funny, if you know that there used to be a team in St. Louis called the Browns. (If you don’t it would not make much sense) .Great cartoons.
