Sunday morning toons: Contents of the overhead bins may have shifted during the flight

Jet Blue flight attendant Steven Slater lost his job for doing what anyone who's ever flown would love to have done in his place. That and more, beginning with
Daryl Cagle's toon round-up for the week.

p3 Picks of the Week: Mike Luckovich, Nate Beeler, Bob Englehart, John Darkow, Jimmy Margulies, Adam Zyglis, Larry Wright, Rob Rogers, and Monte Wolverton.

p3 Best in Show, Flightless Division: Jerry Holbert.

p3 Legion of Merit: Steve Sack.

p3 Palme d'Or (with scales): Bill Day.

Reality: Overrated? That's what Tom Tomorrow wants to know.

Disneyland after dark? The headline is alarming: Did Tigger and Donald Duck Grope Women at Disneyworld?, but at least the word "acquittal" does turn up if you read far enough.

Ben Sargent salutes the honest approach.

"I was reading Ms. Magazine, but also Bride magazine: Romance in Doonesbury has taken a funny turn.

Here's this week's Barry Blitt illustration.

No legacy strips, no classic re-runs: Cathy Guisewite, the creator of the daily strip "Cathy," is closing up shop.

Portland homeboy Jack Ohman jumps on the bandwagon.

Ala Bahma -- get it? The studio let the copyright slip on this one from 1942. I especially like the sword and basket bit. Directed by Chuck Jones, here's "Case of the Missing Hare."

No p3 Bonus Toon: from Jesse Springer this week.
