No one in management at that newspaper should be permitted to write a single word about political cartoonists, except to say, “we eliminated ours.”

This is being done to save money? So Born Loser and
Family Circus are cheaper? Sounds like Brutus and Jeffy need
a raise

Not sure how “cheaper” is a reason… two strips for two other strips? It is a dog eat dog world out there I guess!

FYI syndicates, I am VERY cheap!!! That is what people tell me anyways….

When did the Herald-Sun drop Family Circus?

If you think about it, it kind of figures that a strip called “Born Loser” would be dirt cheap.
