Lakeland Ledger cartoons re: Atheists of Florida

The Ledger cartoons depicting our 1st Amendment activities in Lakeland: stopping the city from conducting prayer rituals (aka "invocations") at public meetings (more at our website ... http://www.atheistsofflorida.org )

This cartoon depicts Atheists of Florida members at Lakeland City Commission meeting April 5: (from L-R) Portia W., Rob Curry, EllenBeth Wachs, me, John Kieffer, as SAAAATAAAAN, and Jaime can be barely seen on the far right.

Below is a photo take by a Ledger photographer from which the cartoon was derived (Jaime is repositioned in cartoon)

I'm disappointed. As political cartoons they fail on every account. They aren't funny and they don't have a discernible message. I expected a laugh even if the message conveyed was wrong. I was disappointed.

Clint, these peope are totally humorless.
They neither have a sense of the ridiculous nor any idea of how other people feel about their dumbass public praying.

Well, the last two were pretty dumb, but I do find the first one a bit funny.
