I remember that Charles Preston (WSJ Editor) loved this gag, and kept referring to it again and again after he bought it.




Nutrition Health Review, Winter 1983





King Features "Laff-A-Day", July 22, 1981

This one was reprinted in Reader's Digest.




Insurance Sales, July 1989

Insurance Sales magazine, and a sister publication in the insurance field, Rough Notes magazine, were relatively low-paying markets, but I could count on them to buy many of my business-related gags after they had been rejected by all the other publications. Both of them printed many cartoons of mine. Insurance Sales folded years ago, and I'm not sure if Rough Notes is still around.




The National Enquirer, November 11, 1982


natenq111182.JPG The Enquirer, the much-maligned supermarket tabloid, was surprisingly generous in the rate it paid for cartoons. It was said that the owner, Generoso Pope, believed in rewarding his reporters and contributors well. Mr. Pope died many years ago, and as far as I know the Enquirer doesn't publish cartoons anymore, but I'll keep checking it at the cashier.

A couple of times when I was in the neighborhood of the Enquirer editorial offices in Lantana, Florida, I stopped in to say hello to the cartoon editor. I'm pretty sure that the offices are now in Boca Raton.




The Wall Street Journal, September 4, 1984





The Wall Street Journal, October 27, 1982

This is one of two similar cartoons I did during the 1982 election campaign. For the other one, see the King Features entry for August 5, 1982.




King Features "Laff-A-Day, August 5, 1982


king080582.JPG The political campaign of 1982 must have been an exciting time, at least for me. I drew this cartoon, and another one very similar to it, with a slightly different caption, and they were published within a couple of months of each other. See the Wall Street Journal entry for October 27, 1982 for the other version.

I suppose I should have been embarrassed, but I'm sure no one even noticed it at the time.
