This Week's Sneak Peek
In an early chapter, Nelson struggles to list any female editorial cartoonists. He was either unaware of, or unimpressed by, Etta Hulme or Kate Salley Palmer (Hulme began cartooning for the Fort Worth Star Telegram in 1972; Palmer would have just begun drawing for the Greenville News the year the book was published). On the other hand, Nelson includes one of the cartoons of Pete Wagner, who was still drawing for college newspapers at the time, so it's not as if Nelson wasn't trying to be as up-to-date as possible.
Anyway, I mention this book because there is a distinct possibility that a reference in chapter 5 was in my head when I came up with this week's cartoon idea.
