E&P managed to get Simone to answer a question editors never answer:

What is your favorite comic strip and/or syndicated column?

I work with an extraordinary roster of talented people, so this question is almost like asking which child is my favorite. Though because that is a cop-out, I would say that reading the comic strip “Scary Gary” by Mark Buford always makes me laugh. His twisted sense of humor, hilarious cast of undead characters and intricate drawing offers a great respite from the stress of keeping up with the 24-hour news cycle.

In terms of syndicated columns, reading Marc Dion’s words each week is a joy. He expresses the opinion of middle-class America through the lens of an old-school newspaperman.
