There are certain newspaper traditions I love and one of them is drawing
editorial cartoons during the Christmas season. There's an abundance of
metaphors to use even when the news is bad, and that's almost all the time
in Editorial Cartoonland.
The crummy Connecticut economy continues to fuel layoffs and I feel sad for
anyone being laid off, but especially at this time of year.
My wife and I put up our Christmas tree this week and it got me thinking.
Why aren't all corporations on a fiscal year instead of a calendar year?
Every year at around this time, people get layoff notices. Merry Christmas.
Have a nice Hanukkah. Happy New Year. Here's a cardboard box. Fill it with
your belongings and get out.
This happens every year. What a rotten Christmas present to find under the
tree. If corporations ended their year in June, we'd get our notice in good
weather and maybe play a little golf or go to the beach before reality hit
upside the head.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
