Subject: A short message from Tom Tomorrow

I just got back from a trip and discovered that my "Starr I Are" cartoon,
which initially ran in the New York Times a few weeks ago and has run in
most of my 100 or so subscribing papers, has been transcribed and put up on
the net without attribution -- in some cases with some alteration.  Since
everyone with an email address seems to have received a copy of this thing
-- I've also heard it's been getting read aloud on right-wing talk radio --
I just wanted to set the record straight on authorship (so that I don't end
up getting accused of plaguarizing my own work!) ... please post and
forward this message as you see fit.  Thanks.

STARR I ARE by Dr. Suess

I'm here to ask
As you'll soon see --
Did you grope
Miss Lewinsky?

Did you grope her
In your house?
Did you grope
Beneath her blouse?

I did not do that
Here or there --
I did not do that

I did not do that
Near or far --
I did not do that  

Did you smile?
Did you flirt?
Did you peek
Beneath her skirt?

And did you tell
the girl to lie
When called upon
To testify?

I do not like you
Starr-You-Are --
I think that you
Have gone too far.

I will not answer
Any more --
Perhaps I will go
Start a war!

The public's easy
To distract --
When bombs are
Falling on Iraq!
