Clay Bennett, award-winning cartoonist for the Chattanooga Times-Free Press
Bennett earned honorable mentions before in this competition. His distinctive, almost simple style, and his sharp and incisive wit, make Bennett a great cartoonist, one of my favorites for a long time.
His 2011 Lurie Award winner depicted the breakdown in Palestinian/Israeli peace talks:
Clay Bennett's Lurie/UN Award winning cartoon, Chattanooga Times-Free Press; inspired by Escher, perhaps, it shows the difficulty in even getting started any talks on Mideast peace.
I especially like the ambidextrous feature: The cartoon works upside down, too.
Congratulations, Mr. Bennett, and all the winners in the 2011 Lurie/UN Cartoon Awards.
We've been soaking in the Bathtub for several months, long enough that some of the links we've used have gone to the Great Internet in the Sky.

My blog, Millard Fillmore's Bathtub, is a continuing experiment to test how to use blogs to improve and speed up learning processes for students, perhaps by making some of the courses actually interesting. It is a blog for teachers, to see if we can use blogs. It is for people interested in social studies and social studies education, to see if we can learn to get it right. It's a blog for science fans, to promote good science and good science policy. It's a blog for people interested in good government and how to achieve it.
