Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976. Borgman has won every major award in his field, including the 1991 Pulitzer Prize, the National Cartoonists Society's Reuben Award for Outstanding Cartoonist of the Year in 1993, and most recently, the Adamson Award in 2005 as International Cartoonist of the Year. His award-winning daily comic strip Zits, co-created with Jerry Scott, chronicles the life of 15-year-old Jeremy Duncan, his family and friends through the glories and challenges of the teenage years.

BorgBlog Online Journalism Award finalist

Congratulations to Jim Borgman! BorgBlog has been named a finalist in the national Online Journalism Award competition for 2006 in the commentary category in the large market division. He is up against entries from the New York Times, Slate and BET. The contest is looking for commentary original to the Web, not just repurposed print work. Those of you who read BorgBlog regularly, know that it offers a rich variety of Jim’s sketches, thought processes and comments that don’t appear in print. Even most of his print cartoons now appear in the blog long before they ever go on the press.

Check out the complete list at The winners will be announced in October.

Congratulations to Jim Borgman for being nominated as a finalist, I hope you win! Thanks, too, to the Cincinnati Enquirer for hosting this blog, it is a great read and I am an avid fan! All of Cincinnati should be proud of your great local talent, we who live elsewhere are jealous!

BTW: My local paper "downsized" their politcal cartoonist... so thanks, Cincinnati for your generosity and sharing Borgman with all of us on the internet!!!!!!

Humor is the great thing, the saving thing. The minute it crops up, all our irritations and resentments slip away and a sunny spirit takes their place.

Congratulations to Jim "Mr Suburb" Borgmann. He brings glory to Blue Ash or Symmes Township or wherever he has fled to. As an effective spokesman for hollowing out the city, he is advancing the agenda of the "Anywhere-But-Cincinnati" Unquirer.

Wow: That's a pretty harsh criticism of Jim Borgman. What does it matter where he chooses to live: that's his business and not germane to his opinions. He tells it as he sees it and he sees the city as being in trouble and in denial that it has problems. What's wrong with that? Rather than berate him, I suggest that the writer above focus on what he or she can do to help and not take pot shots at the messenger.

I agree, and while we're at it a BIG congratulations to David Wells, who not
only pitches in the major leagues but
finds time to edit the editorial page of the Enquirer. Man, you're too much, Boomer.
