Awesome idea and usage of local content by a great cartoonist. THIS is why newspapers need cartoonists. To use them more doing things other than just editorial cartoons.

Jim Borgman and James McCarty did this sort of thing for The Cincinnati Enquirer back in 1986. It was great. They even turned it into a book called “The Mood of America: A Journey Toward Liberty.” They traveled across the country, writing stories and Jim providing sketches along the way.

Like Drew said, great use of a cartoonist for a newspaper.

Great. I was born and raised in Nevada so this even better for me. Love it and the cartoons of course.
