When I'm writing a new batch of cartoons, I usually begin by sitting down and reading. Sometimes it's a newspaper, sometimes it's a magazine, sometimes it's an article online. And I've found that after I read a few articles in the same vein, patterns begin to emerge. So, one day I decided I'd play close attention and see if I could discern the\u00a0pattern. This cartoon doesn't get it exactly right, but it's not far off.
