I recently suggested that the editor of the Columbus Alive was not being forthright with me when he dropped my strip due to “budgetary considerations” I thought that he had turned around and replaced it with another cartoon. As it turns out, the other cartoon was already running in the paper along with mine, and when he was in fact faced with budgetary considerations, he simply made an editorial decision as to which one he preferred, which is entirely his right as editor of the paper. I wish he had decided to continue with my work, of course, and would still encourage residents of Columbus to send him feedback on the issue, but I do sincerely regret suggesting that he deliberately misled me. I was wrong, and I apologize.
