All right, I confess...I happen to be an editorial cartoon junkie. Sometimes they crack me up, sometimes they condense a larger truth into a single picture...and often (when they're at their best) they do both at the same time. Ordinarily such cartoons reach their peak during presidential campaign seasons, but this economic crisis has a way of bringing out the very best gallows humor in cartoonists. So for your amusement, in case you haven't seen them already, I present a small collection of cartoons culled from Slate. Feel free to submit your own finds.
