In a week or two, my cartoons will start running on Salon on Tuesdays rather than Mondays. This is due to a consolidation of my own schedule, and allows me to distribute the cartoon to clients on Monday mornings rather than on the previous Friday afternoon — effectively giving me two extra days over the weekend to respond to events in a world of Friday afternoon document dumps and 24/7 blogging and so on. But of course, we apologize in advance for any inconvenience this may cause distraught readers. Take deep breaths, remain calm, and most of all, don’t show any fear. Animals can smell it on you, and that’s the last thing you need, a bunch of animals sniffing around you.
