Tim Menees says good bye

Earlier this year, Tim Menees – after 30 years with the Post Gazette – was let go as their editorial cartoonist. Sunday, he was given a chance to say good bye.

PG readers, like subscribers everywhere, have a love-hate relationship with cartoonists. When I arrived, some said, “You’re no Cy Hungerford!” Luckily for me, most gave me a chance. I quickly learned that Pittsburghers are not too proud to offer praise, and not too shy to give you a kick in the rear.

Do I have regrets about leaving Seattle? Not one. In July I would have been at the PG 30 years — nearly half my life. I am proud to have been part of the PG and a member of such an enormously talented staff. I am truly grateful for their support over the past two months

He mentions a few of the things that he’s doing to stay busy. One of which is to teaching writing at a state prison.

Tim,
Now I know why I have not been able to get in touch. You seem to be an unknown person at the Post-Gazette. I wonder if they forward mail to the vanished?
Steve.
