The spate of violent gunfire deaths in Roswell,NM is the sobering point of Sunday’s cartoon in the newspaper. Wade Whitman was gunned down recently by a dealer when he was trying to score some grass as was Dominik Finch outside his residence recently where motive for murder has yet to be established even though probation violator Steven Wayne Johnson is listed as a suspect.
The South Park Cemetery cartoon caption is “Fastest growing community in Chaves County” or put more bluntly the population of stiffs is increasing evermore rapidly! Such is the mindset of a creative cartoonist, linking things that many may not think of to current issues in the city and nation wide.
To paraphrase a well known quote about music: Music conveys what can not be spoken. Keith Bell’s cartoon’s have a similar essence in that they convey troubling concerns that can be better captured via a drawing than long winded articles by Christian lawyers or commentators.
I have noticed that being a burial plot dealer is sort of hot business these days. To all you vultures who make your living this way, Roswell is 70 miles east of ski resort town and also has relatively easy car access to Colorado.
