Today is "Black Ink Monday," as promoted by the Association of American Editorial Cartoonists in an attempt to shine a spotlight on the decline of staffed editorial cartoonist positions at newspapers. Two prominent editorial cartoonists recently let go/bought out by the Tribune Company were together the direct antecedent to today's event.
Although a key to the effort is getting print publications to pick up these cartoons and run them, they are being collected by the AAEC here in a massive slideshow.
I think the protest is in general a good thing, and agree with the concept that newspapers don't gain as much by eliminating staff editorial cartoonist positions as they could be reviving them and/or putting them to better use. The AAEC is asking that anyone who agrees with their position to consider and saying so.
