Guantanamo Vaccine and Invitation

I flip back and forth between news channels and I saw the news about the Guantanamo prisoners get COVID-19 vaccine before almost everyone else can get it. And I noticed that this story didn’t seem to exist on the mainstream news channels, and I though the old lady saying “Death to America” was kind of funny.  Imagine my disappointment this morning when the cartoon was almost finished and I hear the news that the military was putting the Guantanamo prisoner vaccinations “on hold” while they reconsider it.

SO, I made a last minute change to the wording.

… and the cartoon isn’t as good.

But what the heck.

Hey, check this out … Our own Steve Sack has won the most recent National Press Foundation (NPF) Berryman Award. The NPF usually has a big, annual banquet for their award winners but this year, because of the pandemic, they are having a free, online event on “Hopin“, and they have invited everyone to attend.

The meeting starts at 5 p.m. Pacific Time ON FEBRUARY 18TH, with the main program at 5:30 Pacific – 6:15 pm. followed by a “break-out-room” from 6:15 pm to 6:45 p.m. where Steve Sack will be speaking about his work. It will be moderated by last year’s Berryman winner, CagleCartoonist R. J. Matson. Register for the event at: https://hopin.com/events/npf-2021-awards-celebration You will receive a Zoom-like email 24 hours prior to the event, which will give you another link OR you can also use the same registration link at that time – it goes to the same place on Hopin.


Our reader supported site, Cagle.com, still needs you!  Journalism is threatened with the pandemic that has shuttered newspaper advertisers. Some pundits predict that a large percentage of newspapers won’t survive the pandemic economic slump, and as newspapers sink, so do editorial cartoonists who depend on newspapers, and along with them, our Cagle.com site, that our small, sinking syndicate largely supports, along with our fans.

The world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.  We need you! Don’t let the cartoons die!

The Most Popular Cartoons from February

Here are the most popular cartoons from February. 20% of the cartoons get 80% of the reprints in newspapers, because editors tend to like the same things at the same time. Editors also tend to like the same, small pool of cartoonists, even though all of our cartoons and cartoonists are presented to editors in the same way –so these are the cartoons that got the vast majority of reprints in American newspapers last month.
