Jack Ohman speaks at The Dalles

Jack Ohman, editorial cartoonist for the Oregonian, spoke Wednesday to The Dalles – part of a series of lectures on the campus of Columbia George Community College.

And when asked if he thought his art made a difference in politics he had this to say: “Sometimes I go to bed at night feeling that I really made a statement to a politician, that I really must have got my point across this time. Only to come into the office in the morning, check my voicemail, and hear some aid saying ‘The governor loved yesterday’s cartoon and was wondering if he could have the original for the office.’ Those are the days I call it quits.”
