Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Jim Borgman has been the Enquirer's editorial cartoonist since 1976.

Career Highlight

It took me a few days to catch my breath after Garry Trudeau mentioned Zits in Doonesbury last month. This Sunday we were the clue for 111 Down in the New York Times crossword puzzle. (I finally got to fill in an answer in ink!)

CONGRATULATIONS! It's nice that after all these years you are still humble enough to appreciate it.

here's what people fail to understand: if teachers don't pass the kids in school at all levels through the no-kid-left-behind-to-burden-us-rule, they get FIRED, so the job of "teachers" is NOT to teach, but to PASS KIDS; the kids and teachers are rotated in and out of the revolving door, sometimes as many teachers as 5/week being fired; all around the nation

I actually ran across a zits "adult" cartoon the other day.

So now you have really made it in all worlds...
