Four more cartoons have been added to the "more recent" cartoons
page.  Two of them, however, are not exactly "recent"--I found them in a
file while looking for something else.  But they are relevent to attitudes
about language and dialect--one about George W Bush's Texas accent, another
about his ability to speak Spanish, and another about studying Arabic.
Also, the one that shows a suspect being arrested by police, and being told
that "anything you *say with an accent* will be held against you" I found
just after the Boston bombing.  Go figure.
