Meanwhile, Gannett's Rochester Democrat and Chronicle solicited samples from area cartoonists for a weekly spot showcasing local issues. My submission was one of 50 or so. Originally, the editors planned to rotate between 4 cartoonists. I was thrilled to find out they decided to use me exclusively.
For five years I cranked out my editorial cartoons in the D&C's Ourtowns section, but eventually, the editorial priorities of the section changed and we came to the mutual decision that the life of the cartoon had run it's course.
This collection includes many of the original Fractured Facts and a few editorial pieces that don't rely too heavily on local stories.
