This re-cycled Peanuts cartoon from yesterday’s Chicago Tribune is just too apropos.
In it Lucy is dictating a letter to the editor to Charlie Brown:
”Dear Mr. Editor…Enclosed please find one political cartoon which I have drawn for your newspaper.”
Charlie Brown asks,
“What makes you think he’s going to print it?”
“Don’t worry, he’ll print it…editors hate to lose subscribers,”
I don’t know whether the Northwest Herald runs the Peanuts cartoon, but accepting reader-drawn editorial cartoons is an interesting idea…
Especially since the NW Herald no longer has an editorial cartoonist.
