What a bummer Mort couldn’t get his Cartoon museum up and going. The American Public does not appreciate the fine work done by cartoonists. They take us for granted. For shame, for shame.

You have to admire Mort’s dedication and tenacity. He’s a hero of our industry.

Using the word “international” in a name is not a good idea. For instance, who would want to watch “International Football”?

I don’t want to watch Nation Football…however, I would watch interplanetary football.

And maybe the next Reubens could be on Tatooine…come to think of it, the bar scene in STAR WARS kind of reminds me a bit of karoke night in Kansas City.

Mort’s the greatest!!!

As a New Yawker, I regret The Empire State Building location didn’t work out, I would have been a regular visitor.
