CARTOONISTS' LIVES MATTER!
I would like to say this was very moving and as we used to say, "Right on." I only disagreed with the part where Art said comics of the 60s were not political. The whole thing... East Village Other (publication of the NY Underground) and all of it were political, speaking out more frankly than ever before against the war and American politice (Nixon, et al). No one was murdered, but the whole thing was a rebellion against the rigidity of the times... He spoke well. Even though we have been, sadly, not close for a while now, I think he deserves praise for this, and is probably the bravest cartoonist in the US (well, there may be others) who might be able to speak against these truly vile deeds. Here's the site. http://www.cbc.ca/q/episodes/ All lives matter. Cartoonists too. They are brave and not always too aware of what will really cause them trouble! But I admire them and good for you, Art. Ladybelle
