My deadline for the NYTimes is Friday afternoon, and having a hunch that things with Syria would change before the cartoon was published, I could have done a vague “bombs are bad and our options suck” cartoon, or wait until I had something specific to add. I chose to wait and did a back-to-school cartoon instead.

Plus it was Labor Day weekend and my 34th birthday, and I wanted drink beer and eat unhealthy food instead of pulling an all-nighter and adding to my already-impressive collection of gray hair.
