Good to see the cartoonists in there. Was surprised not to see New Yorker founder Harold Ross and humorist James Thurber (another wonderful cartoonist) on the list, but glad to see E.B. White on it. White discovered Thurber’s drawings and got them into print.

As in any “hall of fame” list, it’s probably best to require that members be retired for a decent interval, if not dead. There are some names here that seem more collegial than well-considered choices. Which somewhat dulls the honor for everyone else.

Wow!….I guess Bill Mauldin, Oliphant, Walt Kelly, Paul Conrad and Jeff MacNelly came in 101,102,103,104 and 105. Close but no cigar.
