Mike Luckovich was one of three speakers at the National Cartooning Society’s Southeaster Chapter annual meting in Gainsville over the weekend. According to the Gainsville Times, he was interrupted during his presentation and challenged on one of his cartoon’s assertions that the U.S. uses torture in investigations. The challenger was not named, but eventually silenced by others in the audience.
“I have strong opinions. I hit people pretty hard,” Luckovich said. “I feel if I do that, people should be able to criticize me. I’m happy. I’m glad they’re voicing their opinions.”
Wish I was there.
