People talk all the time about what cushy jobs teachers have. But how about the position of editorial cartoonist?
There are few jobs in the world in which the employee can insult anyone he wants with near-impunity. Yet that’s what The Hartford Courant’s Bob Englehart does on a weekly basis — or, since he’s joined the ranks of The Courant’s bloggers, on a daily basis.
Terrible Bob put up a post last week that offended just about everyone you can imagine. The Courant foolishly took it down (more on that later) but anyone with a little technical prowess can search for the post on Google and open thecached version (Google saves everything). If that doesn’t work, Romanesko has a tidy summary. Colin McEnroe also put the issue adroitly into perspective.
