Brian Duffy, who was unceremoniously shown the door after 25 years as the editorial cartoonist for the Des Moines Register two weeks ago, will be doing a weekly cartoon for a competing newspaper. The alternative newsweekly, Cityview, gave Brian a full page last week to say good bye to readers, but the publisher decided to make the gig a regular feature.
The publisher was quoted by the Iowa Independent as stating,
We offered space to former Des Moines Register cartoonist Brian Duffy in last weekâ??s issue to publish his farewell cartoon, as the daily did not provide him with that opportunity. The page has now turned, and I am pleased to let you know that you will find Duffyâ??s cartoons each week in this paper.
