Note to Des Moines readers

The paper that runs my cartoon in Des Moines, City View, has apparently just been bought by another company. I was contacted by them last week — they wanted to keep running the cartoon, asked what they needed to do. Seemed very concerned about missing a single week’s installment, very eager to keep running the cartoon. Today, however, with no explanation other than that “decisions were made regarding content,” I’ve been informed that City View will no longer be running This Modern World after all.

I’m not posting an email address or phone number here, because I’m not interested in astroturfing them. But if you live in Des Moines and would like to register your disapproval of this decision with the new owners of City View, you should certainly pick up a copy of the paper and look up the contact info and let them know how you feel.
