Robert Ray and I are the last ones in the office. Everyone else took off early for Turkey Day. Just now (4:45 PM) Robert brings in several NT cartoons that were left on the scanner and places them on my art chair and says, "What happened to Phoenix's sense of humor?" I knew exactly what he meant. He was looking through these cartoons I have been sharing with you (some of the most edgy are yet to come) and he can't believe they actually ran in Phoenix, Arizona in the eighties!
I'm not sure you could run any of these today, but I must say it was because of Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin that they ran at all. No one else had the guts to run them, and so, I really admire them both. Mike only edited me once, and I'll run that cartoon after Thanksgiving (ironic, no?).
Meanwhile, here's a cartoon I still get comments on. I did a piece on how to survive Phoenix in the summer:
People still come up to me and say, "People with their windows down have the right-of-way." And then they laugh. It's become sort of a Valley Road Law.
"But it's a dry deadly heat."
