  1. Today I scrolled through the 900 plus Handelsman cartoons published on the internet. I was impressed by Bud’s satyrical wit. A wit usually associted with the dry political humour of the British. He was a sharply observant,
    cuttingly homourous man,with a God given talent which he developed and utilized to the full.
    Both professors and plebs, students and housewives saw homour in his work. Each interpreting his message, at a level that spoke to them personally and bought a smile to the face, with his interpretation of the crazy mixed up world in which we live. A sad loss!

  2. Thanks this notice board is a grest idea. I hope his wife GP and the rest of the family get to see it!
