Wednesday Reads: Being ladylike does not require silence…

“Being ladylike does not require silence,” Betty Ford told the audience at the Greater Cleveland Congress of International Women’s Year.
I don’t know about you, but I need to take a break from everything…so before we get to the cartoons, I will post some empowering messages.
And a few messages that scream, don’t stay silent!
AAEC News: A Statement from the AAEC Board on Rob Rogers and the Post-Gazette
The longtime cartoonist for The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette has gone missing. Actually, we know exactly where Rob Rogers is—at his desk creating the excellent award-winning editorial cartoons he is famous for. But it’s those cartoons that have been missing for over a week from the Post-Gazette editorial pages, though we know Rob is drawing them because new cartoons are being posted on the web.
It doesn’t take much to connect the dots between the absence of Rob’s left-leaning cartoons and the recent arrival of a Trump-supporting editorial page editor. We would take this opportunity to remind all editorial page editors that their responsibility is to the readers (among whom in Pittsburgh, Rogers cartoons are wildly popular) and to the open and ongoing search for truth in contending opinions. The editorial pages are a public forum, not a members-only private resort in Florida.
Now for the cartoons:
