Who's the Real Menace: Mexicans, Muslims or Mosquitoes? [OC Weekly Editorial Cartoon]

For our latest Orange Feathers editorial cartoon, artist Leslie Agan took on news that the mosquito that carries the Zika virus has been found in Orange County—you know, the place that has some of the highest rates of West Nile virus (carried by another type of mosquito) in the U.S. Here's Leslie's artist statement:

"It's extremely sad that the word 'menace' is used to describe two groups of human beings in Orange County - Muslims and Mexicans. News flash! - the real menace here is the mosquito and the Zika virus does not discriminate. That's something that all of us can agree on!"

YIKES! Great job, Leslie!
