The Late, Great Dwane Powell

  I have gotten way past the point of thinking anyone owes me anything. I’ve done OK with what I’ve been given and won’t bitch because I didn’t get a cherry on my free ice cream Sundae. But I can get pissed off on someone else’s behalf. The Pulitzer Prize is a subjective award; it’s […]

Dogs, Cartoons, and George Booth – A Visit

  By 1965, the cartoonist was making a name for himself along the freelance circuit, with work in the Saturday Evening Post, The American Legion, Look and Collier’s.
