Here's of those cartoons you do where you are positive, absolutely positive that this one will be the one that The New Yorker will buy after getting over 20,ooo rejections there . . . Every time . . . Every time I feel like this, on a certain drawing . . every time I feel like this, I send it to The New Yorker first, ( Actually, I send it to The NYer first, because I will not be denied, I'm not asking , like Howard Roark in The Fountainhead put it so eloquently, " Rather than ask, who will LET me, I ask, who will STOP me ? " ) mainly because I KNOW it belongs in the magazine . . . go ahead, ask ANYBODY . . I send it there first really only because I KNOW, am absolutely positive that one day, they will finally say YES, because they will not be able to stand the temptation . . Anyway, it got rejected, as usual . . . . I shot it over to The Wall Street Journal and they bought it, quick, very quick, extremely quick. If not, I'm pretty sure Playboy would have bought it .
The clip was sent by Don Cresci . . being out here in the country, if I subscribed to the WSJ print edition, I think it would take a week to deliver here.
I'll shut up and get back to the drawing board, where I belong . . . Like someone told Barbra Streisand, " Shut up and sing ! "
