This Week's Sneak Peek

I drew two cartoons on Sunday, both in response to the massacre in Orlando that morning. The one I'll post in a couple days was first, about an issue secondary to the tragedy. I figured that by the time my cartoon appeared in print late in the week, all the shock and sympathy cartoons and memes would have been well circulated.

As I drew it, it occurred to me that for the Florida papers that run my cartoons — the last time I had checked, Watermark in Orlando had been one of them — it was too soon to move on to secondary issues. I stayed up a little later to draw the cartoon I posted here yesterday.

I asked my editors at Q Syndicate to offer both cartoons for publication this week, and Susan agreed.

If you live in one of the markets where my cartoons appear in print, you will be able to tell how quickly the editors where you live moved from grief to anger.
