Congratulations again to my buddy, Scott Stantis, who starts his stint as the cartoonist for the Chicago Tribune today. Â The cartoonist chair at the Trib has been empty for a decade. Â Scott starts out with his cartoon on the front page.
Scott’s old newspaper, The Birmingham News, is looking at portfolios and plans to fill Scott’s old spot with a new cartoonist. Â I think they will get a big stack of portfolios; I have heard from a number of top cartoonists who are applying for the job. Â There aren’t many job openings in this business.
