    Good cartoons, JJ. The one with ICE and the missing Statue of Liberty — ouch. Too true.

    Radical terrorists all over the world.

    Explosions at churches and hotels in Sri Lanka killed more than 200 people and injured 450 Sunday.

    Suicide bombers struck churches and hotels in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

    Sri Lankan authorities announced a nationwide curfew, effective immediately. They blocked Facebook and the messaging application WhatsApp in an attempt to halt the spread of false and inflammatory messages.

    Somehow I don’t think this will end well for Ukraine.

    Comedian Volodymyr Zelensky unseats incumbent in Ukraine’s presidential election, exit poll shows

    Zelensky walked onstage at his election-night celebration to the theme song from “Servant of the People”— the popular sitcom in which he plays the president of Ukraine. “To all Ukrainians, no matter where you are, I promise that I will never let you down,” Zelensky said after the results came in. “Though I’m still not president, I can say as a Ukrainian citizen to all the countries of the former Soviet Union: Look at us. Everything is possible.”

    “Zelensky doesn’t have experience, and Putin is a very dangerous adversary,” said Volodymyr Fesenko, a political analyst in Kiev. “There’s a lot of risk here.”

    On the popular messaging app Telegram, Zelensky’s campaign distributed an image for supporters of the candidate holding two automatic guns. It’s a frame from a graphic dream sequence in “Servant of the People” in which Zelensky’s presidential character comes to parliament, grabs his bodyguard’s weapons, and massacres the lawmakers in front of him. “End of the old era,” the text under the image says.

      Well, Poroshenko, the previous Prez, wasn’t exactly the bee’s knees either. Of course, anyone in that job has an impossible one. Putin making any real solution impossible on one side, much of the population who’d like to join Europe and be well off on another, and a bunch of militaristic white power types on the third messing things up for everybody and also helped by Putin.

      I wish this guy luck, but running ads referencing gunning down legislators doesn’t bode well.

        There didn’t seem to be much of a good choice in that election, and Putin will continue his threats and inroads.

    Happy Easter to a very special group of people.
