Hello and welcome to this week's edition of Counterpoint. Here, you will find diverse perspectives drawn from the satirical pens of award-winning cartoonists, especially for you.

First, we have a bonus cartoon from KAL this week!:  A recent controversial depiction of Benjamin Netanyahu in a cartoon published in the international edition of the New York Times caused a ruckus. To satiate the howling critics, the paper instituted a purge that would have made Stalin proud. The paper eliminated all cartoons from its distribution service, fired two of its longtime award-winning cartoonists and pledged to cease running cartoons.

Eight artistic assaults await you in this week's edition. On tap are witty takes on abortion in the US, protests in Hong Kong, tariffs on Mexico and free speech online. Two Counterpoint star targets, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, get their regular share of grief. Then there's poor Uncle Sam who seems to be everyone's favorite punching bag.
