Rev. Al Sharpton is on the warpath after taking offense to a cartoon in Wednesday’s New York Post that links President Barack Obama to the 200-pound chimp that was killed for attacking its owner’s friend.
The cartoon by Sean Delonas shows a dead chimp and two police officers, one with a smoking gun. The caption reads, “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.”
The cartoon refers to Travis the chimp, who was shot to death by police in Stamford, Conn., on Monday after it mauled a friend of its owner. It links the chimp to Obama, who signed his administration’s economic stimulus plan on Tuesday.

NY Post Editor-in-Chief Col Allan added:

“The cartoon is a clear parody of a current news event, to wit the shooting of a violent chimpanzee in Connecticut. It broadly mocks Washington’s efforts to revive the economy. Again, Al Sharpton reveals himself as nothing more than a publicity opportunist.”

But Rafael Olmeda, president of Unity: Journalists of Color, told Journal-isms:

“It’s as politically insensitive and tone-deaf as anything I’ve ever seen. Any legitimate political point being made is erased by the racist imagery, whether intended or not.”

Rev. Sharpton, members of his National Action Network and other leaders will picket in front of the New York Post headquarters (1211 6th Ave between 47th and 48th Sts.) today at 12 noon.

Tiger Woods is reportedly close to ending his long injury layoff and could decide within days where he will make his PGA Tour return, his caddie Steve Williams said Wednesday.

“It’s going to be anytime, shortly,” Williams told Television New Zealand, adding that Woods will come back to the tour mentally stronger than before. “He’s probably 95 percent of the way there. He was waiting for the birth of his second child which just came last week so he’s ready to go. He just needs a little bit more walking. He hasn’t been able to walk too well.

“Anytime in the next few weeks he’s going to tee it up. He definitely wants to play a couple of tournaments before Augusta so any day now he’s going to make a decision when he’s going to play.”

Woods has not played since reconstructive surgery on his left knee a week after winning the U.S. Open in June. There was talk over the past week that Woods would make his return at the Accenture Match Play Championship in Tucson, Arizona starting Feb. 25. His wife, Elin, gave birth to their second child — a boy named Charlie Axel — earlier in the month.

Williams said Woods had remodeled his swing to accommodate his injured knee and had been refreshed mentally by his long break. “He’s just got a couple of little issues but when he tees it up that will be a sign to say ‘I’m ready to go’ because he won’t play unless he’s 100 percent. It’s getting closer,” Williams said.




Pop superstar Beyonce admits she’s a lightweight when it comes to alcohol, but instead of instantly becoming the life of the party, the hard stuff makes her shut down and turn attention inward.

“I don’t drink often. But when I’m drunk, I’m very quiet and I observe and I go to sleep. I don’t think I’m much fun,” she tells the China Daily.

As for drugs, Beyonce has no intention of ever getting high, because she’s far from impressed by the behavior of drug users and abusers she has met.

She adds, “I always said I would never do it (drugs). I’ve never seen a person who was high and thought, ‘Wow, I want to do that!’ I’m like, ‘That’s cool for them, but no thank you. I’ll just have my wine.'”
