Salem News: At Long Last.....

Published in THE SALEM (MA) NEWS 06/25/2001;
THe FBI finally caught Boston gangster "Whitey" Bulger. I figure I could have used a variation of this gag here on Bin Laden, But Laden was only in hiding since 2001. Bulger's been hiding since 1997. I guess for the next few weeks or so, now, we're gonna hear about news reports that sound like "Sopranos" episodes.

Salem News: Bruins Take The Cup

Published in THE SALEM (MA) NEWS 06/17/2011.
Congrats to the Boston Bruins who went all Grizzly on Vancouver and Brought home the Stanley Cup. They actually used this cartoon as an illo to a small paragraph on the editorial page congratulating the team and the fact that Boston sports teams have dome to amazingly the past several years. All well and good, but did they have to SHRINK MY CARTOON DOWN TO NEAR ILLEGIBILTY?? So to any NEWS readers who may not have noticed the cartoon in the paper, here it is at its intended size. Ah,the newspaper business..(Not that i'm complaining I'm being published..!)
