Nine months after the attacks of 11 September, leading American political cartoonists say they are under intense pressure to conform to a patriotic stereotype and not criticise the actions of Mr Bush and his "war on terror".

Funny Bone!

The Farmer's Donkey

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well.  The animal cried
piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.

Finally he decided the animal was old and the well needed to be
covered up anyway;  it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him.
They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried
horribly.  Then, to everyone's amazement, he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well
and was astonished at what he saw.

With every shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing
something amazing.  He would shake it off and take a step up.
As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the
animal, he would shake it off and take a step up.  Pretty soon,
everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of
the well and trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you - all kinds of dirt.

The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a
step up.  Each of our troubles is a stepping stone.

We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never
giving up!

Shake it off and take a step up!
