I was please to learn that my talented, cartoonist buddy, Bill Day, just got a full time job as an editorial cartoonist for New jobs for editorial cartoonists are rare these days, and full time jobs with Web site firms are even more rare, so this is great to see!Kudos to Peter Schorsch of for being a brave trendsetter who sees the need and value of having a staff cartoonist and local cartoons. Bill will be drawing about Florida issues, at least five cartoons a week, in addition to illustrations for the site.

I have a question about the Foxy cartoon on Friday 1/29/2016.
I don’t know what or who it is about. Please explain.
Thank you.
