Take a peek over Jim Borgman's shoulder

Re-Entry 2008

Just to get us warmed back up, here are a few cartoons from the days before I left on vacation (while BorgBlog was taking a break.) Consider them visual jumping jacks to loosen our muscles for the new year.

Great cartoons! I especially LOVE the elephant quoting Rummy! I feel that way about BOTH sides set of candidates.

I want to encourage you to show some/all of your "ruffs", too. I think younger cartoonists, such as myself, would benefit GREATLY from seeing such things. Case in point, I got to see some of Dick Locher's "ruffs" for both editoons and Dick Tracy a few weeks back and it was interesting to see WHAT he started with vs. what he ended up with!

I'm glad your back to blogging. My daily internet surfing just got a little better.

Thanks for hangin' in there, hoss.

It appears that the Republican Elephant commenting on the available Army has been signing up too many Cat III recruits. That Army needs a new Recruiting Command.

Why is David Coverly drawing editorial cartoons?

Hey, you're home. So good you're back. I like the Hilary nutcracker, the lighthouse, the elephant, bobble butt, and all. Happy New Year!!!

Poor Cincinnati Post!

I'll miss Jeff Stahler's cartoons!

The lighthouse is my favorite. It addresses the dying of alternative voices in the media quite nicely.

Welcome back Jim.

Hi Jim!

Glad you're back! Hope you had a great holiday.

Loved all of the new cartoons but for some reason really laughed at the seasonally appropriate Hilliary/ Nutcracker rendering (Christmas and pre-election seasons.) It's funny how some things tickle. Wondered if you couldn't wait to bring that particular cartoon from your mind into ink on your canvas - and smiled when it spilled out! The use of the nut was clever.

If registering and editing brings this blog back into usefullness for you let's do it. The usefullness is already there for me, although it would be nicer for me if you could clear the static.

I heard you did an editorial cartoon before the break with the artistic manager of the Ballet and the GM of the Aronoff as puppet masters. Is that true? Which archive can it be found? Sounds hilarious.

Nope, that one wasn't mine.

Better than a lottery hit
As 2007 turns into 2008, and with the Celtics winning with such proficiency and ease, it is time to salute Danny Ainge, Doc Rivers, and the team's owners. I know they haven't won anything yet. But so far, to borrow a phrase from Mike Huckabee . . . shazam!

Brady cruises to MVP award
Since he altered the Patriots' fortunes by going from unheralded backup to franchise quarterback, Tom Brady has been an MVP - Most Valuable Patriot. Finally, the rest of the NFL recognized what's been fact in Foxborough since 2001. (Boston Globe, 12 a.m.)

Belichick wins Coach of the Year
Bill Belichick guided the Patriots to the first 16-0 regular season in the annals of the NFL. That unblemished record overshadowed any perceived blemish left by his team's illegal videotaping flap earlier this season, and yesterday he was voted the Associated Press NFL Coach of the Year.
