More than a year after this cartoon appeared in The National Law Journal, I was surprised to see the identical gag in The New Yorker. It was in the October 13, 1997 issue and drawn by a famous New Yorker cartoonist — same restaurant setting, exactly the same caption. Great minds thinking alike, I guess.
CAPTION: “I'd also like to remind you that when they rounded up the usual suspects, my client was not even one of those rounded up.”
The Florida Bar News and Florida Bar Journal are two relatively low-paying cartoon venues, but I needed a place for all my National Law Journal rejects, and they fit the bill. Both of them bought a great number of my cartoons over the years, at least 125.
