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. Since debuting in July 1997, Zits has regularly finished #1 in reader comics polls across America and is syndicated in more than 1300 newspapers around the world.

Jail Site

I admit - this is a clever idea. I very much like this cartoon.

However, Mr. Borgman, I feel that it is a bit harsh to brand a prison building with such an insulting label.

As you and I both know, convicts are not necessarily bad people. They are simply misguided, well-intentioned citizens, whose behavior is only labeled deviant because of societal racism and whose insubordination is caused only by a lack of government health care.

Of course, your pun depends upon said epithet. But should humor reign superior over the FEELINGS of all the cons and ex-cons reading your blog?

Though the first poster may have been trolling, I have no doubt that is how Jim Borgman truly feels.

Borgman has always been a bit of a hot dog.

To the first anonymous, come on people who commit crimes are not good and well intentioned, they have little to no value for the feelings, and property of others. They deserve to punished for their actions and should take resoniblity for them as well. I feel the cartoon about cons is great. Tell it like it is Mr. Borgman, Keep up the good work. And as for the liberail Anonymous, try telling a young girl who was gang raped that the men who did it are good people!!

Last anonymous: In the murky waters of the disingenuous the sardonic, the facetious, and provocative are had to differentiate.
PS : I agree, in rating the pros and cons of this one what the heck is there not to like?

PPS: Correction -- "hard to differentiate." (Unless you live in Boston.)
