Hoop Dreams and Nightmares
1. The event or issue which inspired this cartoon is the missing Malaysia plane and or March Madness.
2. There are no real people in this cartoon.
3.The newspaper represents the media. The two people represent American citizens.
4. The cartoonists opinion is that people are focusing on March Madness when the real issue that should be focused on, and what is truly "maddening" is the missing plane.
5. I agree with the cartoonists opinion because media and news is now revolving around March Madness and its issues rather than the missing plane.
