Second opinions

A public official's health is legitimate commentary fodder. Dick Cheney's blood clots and heart issues. Bill Clinton's cardiac-burger attacks. Ronald Reagan's basal cell carcinoma and (yuck!) colon polyps. But life-threatening cancer? That's pretty much uncharted territory. No surprise, then, that most cartoonists skipped over Elizabeth Edwards' and White House spokesman Tony Snow's announcements in favor of more comfortable topics — war, genocide or pet poisoning. A couple of us took the easy way out, second-guessing the second-guessers. Kevin Siers was of two minds, but Walt Handelsman delivered a thoughtful point. Now there's another opinion worth considering.
