Al Jaffee Featured in The New York Times

The Gray Lady profiles the retiring Al Jaffee.

From reporter George Gene Gustinespiece:

The latest edition of the smart-alecky bible (MAD Magazine) of Boomer humor, billed as the “Special All Jaffee Issue” and available Tuesday, is filled with reprinted and previously unpublished work by or about Mr. Jaffee, the creator of two signature features in the magazine, the intricate Mad Fold-In and Snappy Answers to Stupid Questions.

“I had two jobs all my life,” Mr. Jaffee said. “One of them was to make a living. The second one was to entertain. I hope to some extent that I succeeded.”

Happy and grateful for Al, of course, but sad for another part of my youth ending. What’s next?
