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.

Another Crate of Those NASA Diapers, Stat!

On a trip to Asia once, my group boarded the plane in Chicago and settled in for the 14-hour flight to Tokyo. Several members took their Ambien and promptly dropped off into a deep sleep while the rest of us read, talked or otherwise killed time as the flight was delayed...

...and delayed...

...and delayed.

First it had something to do with a stray piece of luggage that seemed to belong to no one on board. Then it was a small maintenance issue, the pilot told us. They'd have us up in no time. A couple of hours later the issue had become union rules: the crew onboard now would exceed its maximum allowable shift if we were to take off.

And so on.

Four and a half hours later, one of the sleepers woke up refreshed, yawned, noticed that we were on the ground and said, "That wasn't so bad! I thought a flight to Japan would feel longer than that."

A full five hours after boarding, we took off on our fourteen hour flight. But the tough part, (I mean besides being crushed behind the reclining longshoreman,) was knowing that when we landed we had an hour to switch planes for our next eight-hour flight to Bangkok.

Bagged Another One

Astronaut Blues

I hate stories like this one about the homicidal astronaut.

People sidle up to me in the elevator and say, "Can't wait to see what you draw about this astronaut." No pressure. Clearly, the cartoons they've drawn in their heads will be better than anything I put on paper.

But the truth is, there's no substance in a story like this. People, relationships gone bad, love betrayed -- there is nothing for an editorial cartoonist to comment on here. The stress of the job? Please.

And yet I can hear my colleagues swarming around the images. Space shuttle far above earth -- "We've got to stop meeting like this." ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Watch. Their cartoons will be in Newsweek and all over If anybody finds anything substantial to comment on, I'll eat my kneaded eraser.

Panic Day

Is Cincinnati unique in its fear of snow?

I spent last weekend in Colorado and drove through drifts on I-70 up through Rocky Mountain passes at 10,000 feet going about 50 MPH as truckers and other drivers whizzed past me. But around here a few snowflakes bring traffic to a standstill and two inches of snow can paralyze the region.

Any of this panic behavior familiar where you live?

Skeptics Sited Floating Away on Iceberg

Balancing Home and Work

This cartoon accompanied a Forum piece on the difficulty of balancing work and home life, for moms specifically. I enjoy subjects like this that get away from the headlines. This is the kind of cartoon I'll see pinned to cubicle walls for years to come.

It's also an example of a situation where color hurt the timing of the cartoon. (As a Forum cover piece, color is de rigeur.) The identical coloration of the figures made it apparent too quickly that the women were suspiciously similar. It would have been better if the reader discovered that after reading the caption.

See, this is more like brain surgery than you ever imagined!
