From The Herb Block Foundation:

“In a historically tumultuous and heartbreaking year where so many political cartoonists created outstanding work to both comfort and eviscerate a suffering and divided nation, Rob Rogers cartoons on racial justice, pandemic hypocrisy & America’s political devolution shone bright. Rob is a virtuoso with tongue-in-cheek irony, using at times a deft touch, sometimes a two-by-four, always sharply on target and thoroughly engaging.”

Said The Foundation:

“Darrin Bell’s cartoons illuminate a path through the political and societal pall with authority, gravitas and extraordinary artistic skill, leaving no doubt to his audience as to what – and who – is wrong in our nation.”

Excellent. In your face, Steve Kelly and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for forcing out a world-class cartoonist. CONGRATULATIONS to Rob Rogers; keep them coming.

Well, I don’t think Steve Kelley had anything to do
with the troubles between Rob Rogers and the PP-G.

Mea culpa; you’re right. I was thinking of Keith Burris, to whom Block Communications gave editorial oversight for the PPG in addition to his same responsibilities at the Toledo, OH paper, The Blade.
