Airline Ordeal

That must have taken a number of sketches to get a Boeing to "spit." That, and the sound effect, made the cartoon.

Another new book: "The Art of Ill Will"" ("The Story of American Political Cartoons"). The title is poor and the redundant use of contemporary cartoons to the ommission of many (i.e. MacNelly, Peters, Borgman, Luckovitch) is lamentable. (Also twice leaves out the caption of Bill Mauldin's Purple Heart cartoon.) It's worth looking at, nevertheless.

(Weekly Cartoonist:)

Yes, Clifford Berryman was an amazing draughtsman, to be sure, but he had one habit that absolutely baffled me. He would label *everyone* in a cartoon. Even Harry Truman. In *1948*, yet! In a *Washington* newspaper, yet! (Hence my question to Mr. Borgman about his rules on labeling.)

I have a book on John Nance Garner, about a 1/3rd of which are cartoons, and it has the largest batch of Clifford Berryman cartoons I've seen in print in one place, easily about a 100. The other ones I've seen are scattered. The National Archives' magazine had a small batch published a few years ago, including an absolutely hilarious 1914 cartoon Berryman did about Woodrow Wilson, imagining him doing all sorts of things like Indian wrestling, going to the nickelodeon, watching a dog fight, &c. that was contrary to Wilson's stuffy image...and all done with a charm and humour that made one laugh with the cartoon, and not at Wilson.

anon: DUH, his views are his and have his name on them. That's what an editorial cartoonist does. Get with the program, already. --T' Mraz

Great cartoon - the "Ptooey" makes it. I laughed out loud when I saw it.

GE is putting the public safety in jeopardy every day and the Enquirer is covering it up every day!!

That book (The Art of Ill Will) also omits out a long caption on a Nixon cartoon by Paul Conrad. (Nixon as Hamlet surrounded by skulls.) Very bad copy editing.

I love it....thanks....I laughed out loud as well. Still chuckling. Who is JB? Sorry you have to edit. It is interaction though.
