Gaddafi’s Shoe Problem

What’s going on in Libya is nothing to make light of.  But  as a cartoonist, it was difficult to resist drawing the above when presented with the imagery of Gaddafi holding an umbrella, combined with the tradition of taking off shoes to show disrespect.

I wish the Libyans well and hope they get what they want.
