I’ve always admired Ted Rall’s ability to take what is effectively an alternative/underground cartoon and make it part of the mainstream. He runs in far more mainstream papers than I do (which isn’t hard, granted), and until recently, his work was part of the New York Times’ online comics page.
Well, now there’s a hole where the little Rall icon used to appear. According to Editor & Publisher, the Times has decided to “move in a different direction,” which is, apparently, “away from Ted Rall.”
Rall’s got more about it on his site.
