The Santa Barbara Independent dropped TMW for the usual budget reasons not too long ago. I never even got around to mentioning it here, but reader response in the area was apparently both immediate and vocal, and I’m happy to say the cartoon returns to the paper after a mere two week hiatus. Many thanks to the editors there, and of course overwhleming thanks to the readers who spoke up and made a difference. Don’t let anyone tell you that sort of thing doesn’t matter. Just because something doesn’t work every time, doesn’t mean it never works.
Closer to home (for me), the Advocate papers could still use some nudging.
