The Late, Great Dwane Powell


I have gotten way past the point of thinking anyone owes me anything. I’ve done OK with what I’ve been given and won’t bitch because I didn’t get a cherry on my free ice cream Sundae.

But I can get pissed off on someone else’s behalf.

The Pulitzer Prize is a subjective award; it’s not the hundred-yard dash so you can’t say for sure anyone deserves one, but if they’re going to give out an award and say it’s for the best cartoonist in the country it’s hard to see how they missed giving one to Dwane Powell and I know a shitload of cartoonists who agree with me.

So let’s go back to where we started: Dwane Powell should have won a Pulitzer Prize.
