Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year Paperback – March 31, 2006
by Charles Brooks (Editor)
Last year was a big story year. The greatest natural disaster in U.S. history, Hurricane Katrina, tore up the Gulf Coast, then Hurricane Rita hit the Texas/Louisiana border. John Roberts became our Supreme Court chief justice and first Harriet Miers and then Samuel Alito were nominated to replace retiring justice Sandra Day O’Connor. The Iraq war continued, and two terrorist attacks in London reminded us all to be vigilant. President Bush’s approval ratings reached an all-time low, and the deaths of Pope John Paul II, Judge William Rehnquist, and Terry Schiavo all had surprising ripple effects. “Deep Throat” was revealed, as was the use of steroids among professional baseball players. Israel withdrew from Gaza, and Syria withdrew from Lebanon.
