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.

I will sign a petition to place this issue on the ballot.

Then I will remain open minded about voting on it. I voted NO the last time.

I voted yes in 1996 on the 1 cent sales tax increase for the new stadiums. The proponents of that issue mounted an excellent campaign. Then on election day in March of 1996 it was one of those cold, all day rain, damp spring day, and the issue passed 62 - 38 %.

Let the proponents of this issue mount the same type of campaign and convince me to vote for it.

Commissioner Badinghaus took quite a hit for his efforts. Would not be suprised if this reflects negatively on Dems in the next Commissioner election.

The one thing that bothers me is that TEMPORARY taxes never ramain temporary. OHIO SALES tax started as a 1% temporary tax in the 1930s.

City of Cincinnati earnings tax started as a TEMPORARY (.05%) in 1967.

There is something about politicans of BOTH PARTIES about taxes and their refusal to let a temporay tax expire.

The should have used the money for a new jail instead of for 2 new stadiums that weren't needed and were only built to placate two cry-baby organizations that continue to underperform and dissappoint.

Voter know they got the shaft in that deal and they showed their displeasure by voting down yet another tax. So now our politicians have to sneak it in by back door methods.

If you can't get the voters to approve it, then you do without.

The voters spoke loudly when they rejected more money for a new jail.

Commissioners need to figure out how to better use what they have instead of holding the citizens hostage by threatening them with more crime instead of being responsible with the resources they already have.

On a lighter note...
I got your package in the mail today. Thanks a million! As someone who has collected sketchbooks 1-11, it was really cool to see an autographed copy of #12.

Leadership????!!! More like arrogance and cowardice. Leave it to Borgman to fawn over the usurpation of the electorate. I find it rather amusing that Portune and Pepper aren't willing to trust voters to decide on this issue, the very people that elected them to office. Talk aboout the height of hypocrisy. Of course, our "fair and balanced" editorial cartoonist seems to praise these types of nefarious political moves, unless, of course, it doesn't curry favor with his political views.

His cartoons continually cease to be relevent or entertaining.

Wow Tony, you sure showed him didn't you. I see you found a time tested "progressive" method of addressing a argument: Call him names!
