I’m a huge fan of New Yorker cartoons, (clearly – they’re littered throughout this blog!), and the artists that make real life situations come to life using humour, satire and more than a little cynicism.
Sometimes I hoot out loud at the sheer brilliance of what I am seeing. Other times I smile wryly. This time I gasped in absolute shock and horror. And familiarity.
It’s from February 2016, and seems to have been frightfully prophetic for our COVID times. As ‘underlying conditions’ has become barely-concealed code for ‘half dead anyway’, artist, Frank Cotham seems to have had a futuristic glimpse into the 2021 minds of conservative politicians and commentators.
Stay strong, my friends with diabetes and other underlying conditions. You matter. We all do. And living longer absolutely is right for us.
