Loon Star State: The Dumpster is Full

What happens when you can't sink any lower?

Ben Sargent, a bald, older white man with a bushy white beard is dressed in a suit and red bowtie, with his artistic tools, including pens, in front of him.

A version of this story ran in the November / December 2022 issue.

A cartoon showing a soldier bringing a box labelled "Rights" to an overflowing trash bin in a squalid alleyway by the "GOP Service Entrance." Already thrown away are "Truth," "Decency," "Law" and "Democracy." As a concerned anthropomorphic elephant leans out, the soldier declares, "Now what? Dumpster's Full!"
