Clay Jones’ editorial cartoons predict the future

This was an interesting post from E&P.

Newspapers like to turn a profit. At a Virginia daily, an editorial cartoonist turned into a prophet.

This past Sunday, Clay Jones of The Free Lance-Star in Fredericksburg did a cartoon showing a Virginia Tech football player running down the field holding a gun. On Monday, former Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was arrested for brandishing a gun. “We ask you: In what other paper can you read about the news before it happens?” quipped The Free Lance-Star in a Wednesday editor’s note titled “Life Imitates Jones.”

Clay’s cartoon can be viewed here.
