I was nearly halfway done inking the cartoon when a story came on the evening news came that Jenner had been involved in a car accident resulting in the death of a woman in one of the other cars.
There was no way I could go forward with plans to run that cartoon any more.
I spent a good hour or two desperately scouring the internets for other topics I could draw something about, but I couldn't get away from the story that had stopped me cold.

That unfinished cartoon goes back in the folder. Maybe I'll finish it one of these days -- I've already heard one late-night comedian toss off a Jenner reference as if there wasn't a funeral this week (and Mike Luckovich apparently thought enough time had passed to release today's cartoon) -- or maybe I'll use the idea in a cartoon about somebody else.
