Here are the ten most popular cartoons of the week (April 18 -25).
I wanted to write about how much I appreciate your messages of support since we started our crowd-funding effort to support Cagle.com. Usually our email consists of complaints from readers who disagree with cartoons –often demanding apologies or demanding that I punish or fire cartoonists, or that I remove the cartoons that readers find offensive, disagreeable or wrong. I guess it is the negative nature of the internet.
But with our fund raising campaign I’m getting charming, kind words from lots of readers about how much they enjoy the cartoons and how they look forward to getting their Cagle.com newsletter in their email box every day. It is a Bizarro world that has flipped my email box from nasty to lovely, as I’m hearing from our normally silent fans. It warms my heart!
We still need much more support to keep the cartoons coming as so many of our troubled newspaper clients have fallen behind in paying their bills. We’re also facing a big increase in hacker attacks now. (I apologize for the annoying pages on Cagle.com that make you wait a few seconds while Cloudflare checks your IP address to make sure you’re a real person and not just another “denial-of-service” attack.)
Support from our fans can make the all the difference as the pandemic/newspaper-crash threatens to kill our profession. Editorial cartoons are an important part of journalism and the world needs political cartoonists more now than ever. Please consider supporting Cagle.com and visit Cagle.com/heroes.
Thanks for your generosity!
