Deliver this Valentine to LA

The News-Herald, February 13

This was my Sunday cartoon for The News-Herald. I suspect that Matthew Stafford won the hearts of fans throughout metro Detroit, not just Downriver, on his way to helping the LA Rams win this year's Super Bowl.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone - and let's hope our hometown Lions show up for next season with a heartbeat!

That's the Point!

Six More Weeks of 'Who Knows?!'

The News-Herald, February 2

These days, we never know what's next when it comes to the weather, COVID, whatever. Be ready for anything and be good to each other!
That's the Point!

Back to Normal - Whatever That Is!

 

The News-Herald - January 2, 2022

Monday, January 3, after celebrating the holiday season, we all resume our normal lives - whatever that is. We're starting another year under the cloud of COVID-19, with a new variant (omicron) as a bonus. Whatever "normal" you're returning to, add a little courtesy, caring and understanding as your deal with other people - this new normal is still stressful on all of us.

That's the Point!

A (Cautiously) Happy New Year to All!

 

The News-Herald - December 29, 2021

As we welcome another New Year, along with a new - and apparently more contagious - COVID-19 variant (Omicron), we must approach 2022 with both hope and caution. Happy New Year everyone - let's make it a healthy one!

That's the Point!

The Groundhog is Afraid of More than His Shadow

The News-Herald, January 31

 It's 2021 and the Groundhog reminds us there's more to be concerned about than six more weeks of winter weather. I did this for my Downriver readers, but it's true everywhere. Can't get the COVID-19 vaccine? Stay in your burrow as much as you can!

That's the Point!

Off the Drawing Board: Online Gambling? You Bet!


 Off the Drawing Board: Not every one of my cartoon ideas appears in print. Here's a rough from last week that didn't make the cut in any of the publications I draw for, but remains one of my favorites!

With the official start of legal online gambling in Michigan last Friday (Jan. 22), I heard many people worry that such "easy access" will drive greater gambling addiction. I'm not a gambler - not even a casual one (didn't even by a MegaMillions ticket last week!) - so I can't comment specifically on the "danger" of online wagering. However, I do believe that any bad habit can be amplified via "easy access" on the internet. Isn't it all really a matter of self-control?
That's the Point!

Something to Look Forward To

The News-Herald, January 17

Usually, in these grey days of January, we lift our spirits by looking forward to spring. But this year, instead of counting down to March 20, many of us are counting the days until we can get some information about receiving the COVID-19 vaccine. If all our levels of government can get distribution sorted out, come spring we'll all be able to - literally - breathe easier!
