The Most Poignant Cartoon of the Week

By Michael Cavna

Leave it to Beeler.

In the wake of the fatal Metro crash this week, the Washington Examiner's NATE BEELER drew the most poignant image I saw about the tragedy. It has just the right tone, the right feel.


If you have reactions to the cartoon, your comments are invited.

And The Post's own TOM TOLES has a sharp, deft commentary on what he thinks led to the tragedy -- in THIS cartoon.

"The Red Line": exceptionally well executed, on every level of detail. An excellent example of the visual power of editorial cartooning.

Looks orange to me.

Orange to me too, but well done.

IMO, Toles is rarely deft or clever. He belabors the obvious, and is a minor leaguer compared to Mike Luckovich.
