I am here to talk about a political cartoon in your newspaper. It was by Adam Zyglis posted on Aug. 2, 2013. It shows a Republican (represented by an elephant in a suit) saying “Practice makes perfect” while throwing a paper away in a garbage can that says “40th vote to repeal Obamacare,” and the lid to the trash is the Capitol building. At the bottom of the page it says, ”The art of doing Nothing.” This cartoon is showing how the government is falling apart and turning into garbage because of the huge disagreement in the congress, and how this all is going nowhere. I agree with what it is saying, and I think the government should come to some sort of an agreement on the law, or just have one side try to see the other side’s perspective instead of being blind on the whole picture.

LOS ANGELES — There's this weirdly unfounded reputation that just about everyone in Los Angeles is vegan and therefore sunbaked Angelenos only feast on the likes of kale and quinoa.
