What's Mallard raving about today?
One one level, you almost want to root for today's Mallard because it shows compassion for the poor outside the US. Until you realize that he's making the point by taking a swipe at the poor inside the US, saying they are fat. As if that fact makes them a target of derision and, presumably, implies that they are getting fat by suckling on the Government's teat.
And then you find yourself wondering where the figure in the barren landscape is supposed to have gotten an English-language newspaper.
