The Jim Henson Exhibition Gallery Review

The Jim Henson Exhibition, a PERMANENT gallery of Jim Henson art, films. props, and of course puppets from all aspects of his career, has opened at the Museum of the Moving Image at New York City. I was down there for the Kickstarter reception day and I found it just no less than amazing. If you ever travel to NYC , this is a must-see.

Good Luck Steve Whitmire

It was announced today that Steve Whitmire, who performed Kermit the Frog since Jim Henson passed away, has left the Muppets. Reasons why are unknown at this time. Steve did a fantastic job with his own characters like Rizzo and Wembley, as well as brilliantly carry on iconic ones like Jim Henson's Kermit and Richard Hunt's Beaker. The best to him on his future endeavors. You will be missed, Steve.

Salem News: Settlement

The Essex Regional Retirement System,that manages pensions for Many North Shore retirees, participated in an anti-trust lawsuit against several of the country's major banks for fixing the financial markets. Once the courts ruled, many of the plaintiffs got at least $1 million, and a few got $10 million. Essex Regional's share? (My cartoon from the 02/16/2017 SALEM NEWS)

Popeye Punches Hitler

Inspired in part by a current viral video. I don't condone violence, but that doesn't mean I don't believe that most people who support stupid /bigoted causes don't deserve a punch in the mouth (at the very LEAST) Thank god we have our cartoon characters to allow us to let off steam without harming anyone.
