Here - I'll leave you with this

One of my favorite themes: humor as political weapon . . . .

A Chron article on comics and the war.

"I've often said I'd rather be a poor guy making a stand than a rich guy who never says a word," he said. "There is so much injustice in this administration, so much lying and really dangerous politics. It's impossible to be a thinking, creative person right now and not comment."

The article isn't really as in-depth, issue wise, as it could be - but this should prompt you to google Boondocks, Doonesbury, etc, to catch up on how pop responds to an increasingly uncomfortable world situation.

It's also another opportunity to see that no matter what you're doing, if you have the smallest bit of microphone in front of you, use it to be heard. Eventually people will listen. We can only hope it will be in time.
