Sam Richardson, Taos News Team Up

The Taos News is the latest newspaper to engage in a growing habit we heartily endorse.

The weekly paper has secured the services of Sam Richardson to provide cartoons on local conditions and events.

From The Taos News:

We’re bringing a new cartoonist into the mix here at the paper.

Local artist Sam Richardson answered our call for a locally-based cartoonist some months ago, and we’re publishing his first work in this week’s edition.

Sam joins us as we continue our commitment to employing a true local newspaper cartoonist — a rare breed these days, and one of the first positions many papers choose to cut as they have scaled back amid economic pressure.
