Happy 90th Charlie Daniel

Cartoonist Charlie Daniel was born December 14, 1929; today he becomes. in our parlance, a Senior Stripper. Happy Birthday Charlie! For 60 years, from 1958 to 2019, Charlie was cartooning for Knoxville, Tennessee. Charlie was let go by Gannett early this year. Charlie has been honored throughout his career, most recently being awarded the Distinguished […]

CSotD: Illogic and hypocrisy roundup

This Phil Hands piece is a good opener on a day when a power failure has delayed the process.  It had nothing to do with weather but the lack of power is lack of heat in the house, which puts me in the mood. The police in Hands’ home base of Madison are, I suppose, […]

CSotD: Very random observations

Pat Bagley starts us off with a depressingly accurate look at things. The comment on the tax on services identifies this as a local comment on Utah politics, but it applies nationally as well. I suppose they might listen if they were more beholden to local voters than to corporate contributors, but an Amendment to […]

Cartoonist “Suffocated” by Political Correctness

An update on our story of an editorial cartoon that made light of a measles outbreak in Samoa that is killing the young and the elderly. After an uproar and street protests the Otago Daily Times printed a mea culpa, and editor Barry Stewart publicly stated a more heartfelt apology. Cartoonist Garrick Tremain at the time […]

And a Prince of a Fella Besides (Michael Ramirez)

When an editor gets a message from a reader about an editorial cartoon, he knows it is not going to be from a happy camper. But every once in a blue moon that editor is surprised: Political cartoonist Michael Ramirez is simply a genius. I have been amazed and entertained for years by Mr. Ramirez’s […]

CSotD: Random observations

Michael de Adder picks up on the news that Canada’s athlete of the year and the Sports Illustrated Sportsperson of the Year are both women. Tennis player Bianca Andreescu was the unanimous pick for Canada’s Lou Marsh Trophy, while women’s soccer hero Megan Rapinoe was chosen by SI for her courage as well as her […]

CSotD: Confronting Reality

I’m going to start out with the most challenging cartoon of the day, Bob Gorrell‘s commentary on the IG Report. Unlike the Mueller Report, this stuff is truly dense, such that the Executive Summary is more challenging than the fine print in most others. A quick reaction is impossible, and a more thoughtful response is […]

Alternative Paper Annoyed at Moderate Cartoonist

Seattle’s alternative newspaper The Stranger takes exception with David Horsey being a middle-of-the-road editorial cartoonist: Seattle Times‘ editorial cartoonist David Horsey has it in his mind that he is the voice of good old American common sense. He never goes too far to the right, nor too far to the left. He is a moderate, […]

CSotD: Reality Checks

Starting out with an arc to watch. Some time ago, Adam@Home discovered he’d become a viral meme after somebody took a pic of him at the local coffee shop. Now he’s been approached by a coffee company that wants to make him the face of their brand. Problem is, the money is irresistible but the […]

CSotD: Sunday Potpourri

The good news is that Rob Rogers has found a home for “Brewed on Grant,” his local look into Pittsburgh life. The other good news is that he manages to combine the personal with the universal, which is the key to good writing. The principle is simple but not easy to apply because it falls […]

CSotD: Better Late Than Never

Michael Ramirez points out that the US is carrying most of the burden of NATO, a prominent argument of the New America First crowd. Of course, it’s not that simple, but we’re not invested in complex arguments that require study. It does seem, however, that there is an ongoing bit of confusion over what we […]

The United States uses atomic bombs against Russian industrial complexes. Soviet forces invade West Germany, the Middle East and Alaska. US forces, in disarray, have retreated on all fronts. […]
