A lot of time spent writing cartoons is thinking about words, or, often, a single word.
“Resolution” is, of course, what everyone is contemplating right about now, but it’s also defined as “a formal expression by a meeting; agreed to by a vote.” You hear it a lot in legal and political circles, which got me thinking in the direction of this cartoon.
The hardest part was coming up with the legal problem. Homicide? Too violent. Politics? Too easy to offend. But obstruction of justice is nice and vague. And it’s just a goofy phrase.
Kind of a roundabout way to get a cartoon, but that’s how it goes sometimes.
