Swiss cartoonist wins Thomas Nast Award

This is great. Chappatte is one of the smartest guys in the business and a great journalist on top of being a first rate cartoonist. It should be noted he would have won the award for his work done for the International Herald Tribune that appears on the New York Times website ( the NYT owns the Trib). That is the way his cartoons qualified for inclusion in the US contest.
