CARTOONS of the DAY: Comfort Food and Culture

The News-Herald - January 26
The Press & Guide - January 26
Comfort food for a good cause - the annual Downriver Salvation Army "Soup Day" is always worth highlighting and saluting. To the west, in Dearborn, Henry Ford Community College treated area residents to some culture that's unavailable elsewhere.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: So Glad We Have MORE Time Together

The News-Herald - January 23
Local culture, like community theater, is a treasure. "The Carol Burnett Show" dinner theater at Biddle Hall is one of those treasures. I was fortunate to experience its first run, in 2010, and I'm happy to celebrate its return this year!
That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: Good news - good way to start the New Year

The News-Herald - January 19
The Press & Guide - January 10
Good news makes for good cartoons too. "Signs" of an improving economy and the merger of two Chambers of Commerce give Downriverites and residents of Dearborn and Dearborn Heights plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the New Year!
That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: Guest Starring ...

The Press & Guide - January 12
The News-Herald - January 12
Sometimes "guest star" characters, created by cartoonists whom I admire, are effective in emphasizing a local point of view. This week presented two such opportunities, in two different communities; Dearborn's dangerous dog ordinance and a school bus driver issue in Woodhaven.
That's the Point!

Crain's Detroit Business - January 10
January 2011 in Michigan, the North American International Auto Show showcasing a reinvented U.S. auto industry and a newly-installed governor dedicated to reinventing the state. There's the theme for the start of the New Year, reinventing ... everything!
That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: "Two Easy"

The News-Herald - January 5
The Press & Guide - January 5
Two cartoons that were too easy ... the IRS and an outgoing governor are easy targets; but just because it's easy, doesn't mean you shouldn't go it. *grin*
That's the Point!

CARTOONS of the DAY: Happy New Year Mr. Snyder

Off the Drawing Board - January 3 - I didn't have a New Years cartoon scheduled for Crain's Detroit Business, but I did these three roughs in advance for consideration. The big question seems to be will Rick Snyder change Lansing, or will Lansing change Rick Snyder? We may have to wait for that answer, but one thing is for sure - he's the first "big story" of 2011.
That's the Point!

CARTOON of the DAY: On Two - Hut! Hut! Shop!

The News-Herald - January 2
Over the week between Christmas and New Years, and especially on New Years weekend, it seems people fall into one of two camps - football fans and non-football fans. For those of us who love the game, it's bliss; for the rest - well, it drives them to extremes.
That's the Point!
