Comics By Request -- People, Projects In Need Of Funding
By Tom Spurgeon
* the fine, longtime editorial cartoonist Bill Day has been out of salaried work for three years and is apparently in danger of losing his home. A bunch of folks are trying to raise enough money for Day to have a year of steady editorial cartooning work paid for via crowdsourcing. That seems like a really nice thing that might come out of an undeniably tough thing. I can't donate to everything, but I did donate a tiny bit to this one. I have a ton of sympathy for those that were caught by the seizure that the newspaper industry experienced three-four years ago, and even more for those that happened to be right at some of the worst times in one's life to experience such a disruption.
