Cartoons of the Day that Weren't: Goodbye Cadillac HQ!

Unpublished - September 2014
A couple of ideas I had for Crain's Detroit Business regarding the move of Cadillac headquarters to New York City. Neither was published, but I had fun working on them with my editor, and I kinda' like 'em, so I thought I'd share them here. Two takes:
  1. What if, by relocating to NYC, the whole Cadillac product development and strategy team took on the persona of the cast of "Seinfeld?!"
  2. Well, Lincoln once left The D ... and we know how that turned out! (Welcome home, Lincoln!)
So, as the car brand named after the founder of The Motor City leaves for The Big Apple, I say, "... we'll leave the light on for you!"
That's the Point!

Cartoon of the Day: Welcome Autumn ... When Only Leaves Fall (We Hope)!

The News-Herald - September 17
Summer is my favorite season for more reasons than space allows me to list but this year, I'm ready to say goodbye to summer and hello to fall with more enthusiasm than I would have ever imagined possible. "Summer 2014" played out like a bad movie sequel to "Winter 2013-14" ... something like "The Weather II - Warm Weather Menace!" After repairing hail damage, cleaning up flood damage and going without power for too many weekends, I'm ready for some mindless leaf blowing, and maybe some cider and doughnuts!
That's the Point!
