    Thanks.

    Now that I’m working on my own without a home paper (laid off last January In a nationwide Gannett cutback after 38 years), coming up with my syndicated ‘toon ideas is totally up to me, without input from others unless I solicit their input.

    So, I have some cartoonist friends whom I go to for feedback once in awhile, where we kick around ideas, challenge each other and tell each other when we think their work is awful. :-)

    Other times, I just wing it on my own, like I did on the Cummings cartoon.

    Thanks. He passed away about 2:30 AM East Coast time. I was up then, a few hours earlier by way of time zone, and knew that I had to get the cartoon out quickly since I was going out of town today. I’m glad I got it out when I could. Rep Cummings was a great man.

    Maybe Trump should be sent to Harvard. He definitely needs a good education.

    Reality is often born of dreams.

    Cartoons that work can do so, even when they paraphrase.

    In fact, visual paraphrasing is part and parcel of what cartoonists do. :)

    As an example of King’s willingness to change his personal beliefs and approaches, he became over time a complete pacifist even in the area of personal armed-guard protection around his own home.

    He was persuaded that if he was going to effectively advocate for non-violence, he must practice it and personify it in his personal life.

    And we need to continue to work.

    How long was colonial America and its offspring, the United States, a practitioner and appeaser of slavery?

    Equal rights under the law wasn’t built in a day.

    MLK changed peoples’ hearts and if he had been allowed to live instead of being assassinated by a white supremacist bigot, I have no doubt his heart would have changed, too.

    How the Supreme Court is slowly changing to the point where it may recognize sexual orientation as federally protected under the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
