Two of our Favorite Cartoonists Retire

I'm sorry to

write that two of my favorite political cartoonists have retired

from our tiny profession.

TARGET="_blank">Sandy Huffaker
is one my cartoon heroes.

When I was in college I was a big fan of his cartoons that were

running every week in Time Magazine. Sandy worked as a regular

editorial cartoonist for a newspaper when he was young, then

spent his
TARGET="_blank">career as a cartoon illustrator
. Now he spends

most of his time at his ranch in Virginia doing paintings. He

had been drawing editorial cartoons regularly for our syndicate

for the past few years.

Sandy called me a couple of months ago

to say he was tired of the daily editorial cartooning grind.

He is an Obama supporter, he thinks Obama will win and prospect

of losing President Bush makes him lose his anger and passion.

I encouraged Sandy to draw whenever the inspiration hits him,

and last week he sent us this portrait of McCain and baby Palin


If any of our readers are Huffaker fans,

as I am, and are sorry to see him go, send

Sandy an e-mail
and tell him he is missed!

The other cartoonist we're losing is

TARGET="_blank">M.e. Cohen, a freelancer with a wild style

from New Jersey. M.e. is retiring from editorial cartooning because

of a detached retina. He plans to keep doing
, but the daily, freelance political

cartoons were just too much. I'm also hopeful that M.e. will

come back; it is tragic to see him leave us.

M.e. an e-mail
and let him know he is also missed.
