  • CARTOON: Way too serious
  • PUBLISHER: Community is more than a word

    Community is a word too often thrown around without much thought to its meaning in regard to the human element it connects.
    NBC television launched a sitcom called “Community” to parody the humor of small town America and the typecast personalities often found among elected officials, neighbors and local businesses.
