Figured I'd hit this so-called milestone to end the month. Cookie Monster is not owned by me and I apologize for his unauthorized use. (Ha! That's a first!) My apologies to Jim Henson, Frank Oz, David Rudman, Sesame Workshop, The Muppet Workshop, Puppetry and Cartooning in general, and basically the entire world.

Reporter Beth Weilenman interviewed me about the recent HITCHBOT experiment and the cartoon I did for the Salem News . This interview was published in THE BIANCA HERALD.

The Peabody Massachusetts City Council is opposing a plan to run a natural gas pipeline despite the tax revenue the city would receive- partially because installing the pipeline would require tearing up a popular and heavily wooded area. My cartoon as published in the 08/24/2015 SALEM NEWS.

There is an "Open Government Proposal" bill currently in consideration in Massachusetts that would allow the public access and knowledge of legislative records, votes, and "closed-door" meetings. Naturally, many Massachusetts Legislators are not too thrilled about letting the voters know how they do their wheelings and dealings. My cartoon on the subject as it was published in the 08/21/2015 SALEM NEWS.

My apologies for what seems like an obvious repost, but it looks like I jumped the gun on posting that SESAME STREET cartoon yesterday. Just found out today that the SALEM NEWS DID decide to use it after all. You may notice a slight difference here, though. I had second thoughts about the punchline after I had submitted it to the paper and had altered it for the cartoon I posted yesterday. This post is the original version of the cartoon (as now published in the 08/20/2015 SALEM NEWS)

Submitted this to THE SALEM NEWS over the weekend while this story was "hot". I figure if they haven't published it by now, they're not going to use it, so might as well show it here. Tried to go for another take on Sesame Street is now funded by HBO.

Deacon Mushrat meets Sam the American Eagle. If any of you remember my earlier post based on the connections between the Muppets and Pogo, here's another take on it.

Salem had considered a ban on sound amplifiers in the city during Haunted Happenings in order to discourage disruptions by overzealous preachers, but concerns from local tour groups and others pretty much stopped progress on the ban. Noise Quality for Haunted Happenings this year are expected to go back up to 2013 levels at least. And I can imagine other repercussions. My cartoon for the 08/12/2015 SALEM NEWS.
