Are you approaching this journalistically, or more like your editorial cartoons? (ie to what extent are you going for objectivity, insofar as that is possible?) All I can do is present the situation as honestly as possible. I don't imagine the cartoons that come from this will have the normal humorous tone of my editorial cartoons, but I'm also not pretending to be an objective journalist. I wouldn't want that anyway. "Objective journalists" have been reporting from Afghanistan for nine years and they rarely venture out of Kabul or their embed program. Our main goal is to see how Afgans outside of these areas actually live.
